This is the first of three events in a Summer Water Series presented by Outpost Natural Foods and Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters, and hosted at area nature centers.
About this event
Lake Michigan-Huron, the largest freshwater lake in the world, is both a treasure and a mystery due to its vastness. Guided by Don Quintenz, we will walk to the lakeshore where you will learn many of the wonders and important features this world-significant lake brings to humanity. Learn about the geologic as well as the human history of the lake, as well as share perspectives on how it is changing, and what we can do to help preserve its vital role now and for the future. Like the oceans, people erroneously think the vastness of our Great Lakes makes them immune to the effects of human interference. In the event of inclement weather, Elementary Education Manager Jessy Knox will take participants through some enlightening activities that illustrate the magnitude of the Lake and interconnectedness of the Lake’s biotic community.
Light refreshments will be served after the program.

About the series
Water. It’s what make Wisconsin, Wisconsin. Whether it’s our next-door neighbor, Lake Michigan, the Milwaukee River basin, or the countless wetlands across the state, water shapes our lives.
Join us, as we explore and learn more about each of these unique and beautiful features during our Summer Water Series! Three Saturdays, three mornings, three different experiences on our local waterways. Come for one, or all three. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for you to learn and discover, first hand, more about our local waterways, how they are connected, and how they impact our communities.
