Lake Superior Day

July 18, 2010
Lake Superior Basin

Have you ever asked yourself how to celebrate one of the largest pools of freshwater on Earth? You can do that by participating in the annual Lake Superior Day which takes place on the third Sunday of July (July 18th this year).

In honor of the world’s largest and cleanest freshwater lake, towns and communities in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Ontario, Canada along the shores of Lake Superior are planning events in tribute to the greatest of the Great Lakes. Picnics, beach clean-ups, library displays, kite flying, concerts, hikes, an essay contest, and government proclamations are all part of the day’s celebration to bring attention to this huge body of water that holds 10 percent of Earth’s fresh water. On Lake Superior Day, you can visit Canal Park in Duluth and find information about the lake’s natural history, regional culture, and invasive aquatic species.

This event is open and free to the public.
