Celebrate Lake Superior Day
Sunday, July 16, 2006
This Sunday the largest lake in the world has its own day of recognition called Lake Superior Day, held annually on the third Sunday in July. Any one can organize an event or activity that symbolizes their own connection to the lake.
The Lake Superior Binational Forum* is promoting this basin-wide event to highlight the personal, environmental, economic, and spiritual connections people have to this unique world treasure.
Groups around the lake are already organizing special actions for July 16. For a calendar of events visit the Forum’s web site at www.superiorforum.info.
For more information, email the Forum at email@example.com, or call 715-682-1489.
*The Lake Superior Binational Forum is a multi-sector stakeholder group of Americans and Canadians volunteers who work together to provide input to governments about these efforts and to educate basin residents about ways to protect and restore the lake. Members come from Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ontario.
The Forum is located in the United States at the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute at Northland College in Ashland, WI, and in Canada at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The Forum is funded in the US by a grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Great Lakes National Program Office and in Canada by Environment Canada.
