Ohio Sea Grant’s Stone Laboratory Featured in Lake Erie Documentary Starting This Weekend

 

Stone Laboratory, Ohio State University's Island Campus on Lake Erie, will be featured in a new documentary, the third of a four-part series called Lake Erie: Beyond the Surface, airing this Saturday, February 2 at 7:00 pm on WKYC-TV3 in Cleveland.

A year-long series that started last July, the third installment provides a history of the environmental science, rescue, and recovery of Lake Erie.

Dr. Jeff Reutter, Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory Director, discusses the Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory programs' continued involvement with the Lake's recovery through their research and education programs. Others featured include OSU Sea Grant Extension and Coastal Ohio Director Melinda Huntley; OSU Emeritus and former Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory Director Dr. Charles Herdendorf; Senator George Voinovich; and Ohio Sea Grant researcher Dr. Bob Heath.

The last installment of the series will air in May.
