Lake Superior Cruises Offered

Registration is open for the fourth season of "A View From the Lake" cruises. Water quality specialists from the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program and the University of Wisconsin Extension will board the L.L Smith, Jr. with citizens and the research vessel's crew to discuss Lake Superior.

For $20, participants will get a fish-eye's view of the lake's ecology, hear the latest information about: low water levels, the warming waters of the lake, invasive species, and stormwater runoff. During the 3-hour boat tour, participants will also collect and view samples of microscopic plants and animals, and see what the coast of Lake Superior looks like.

These educational cruises sell out quickly. Registration is available on the Web at http://www.seagrant.umn.edu/vfl or by calling Minnesota Sea Grant at (218) 726-6106. A total of 16 trips are scheduled for the following ports (call Sea Grant or visit the Web site for trip times):
