For only $20 (discount of $10 for groups of 4 or more), participants will experience aquatic science, discuss land use challenges, and enjoy a three-hour excursion on one of the world's largest lakes. Trips aboard the L.L. Smith, Jr. R/V are scheduled to depart from the following ports (visit the Web site for times).

In Wisconsin waters, participants will learn how professionals and volunteers are collaborating to evaluate the health of Lake Superior coastal wetlands and streams. They will also discuss how land cover analysis can be used to accommodate future growth while maintaining healthy aquatic communities.

In Minnesota waters, participants will take a practical look at what it means to live "sustainably" and demystify sustainability by learning about local sustainability projects. They will also discover how monitoring helps experts evaluate economic and environmental sustainability in the Lake Superior basin.

A View From the Lake is entering its sixth season. Support for this year’s program is provided by Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program, the Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Great Lakes National Program Office, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
