Talking Trash in Lake Erie
The Great Lakes are filled with items that do not belong there. Huge amounts of consumer plastics, metals, rubber, paper, textiles, derelict fishing gear, vessels, and other lost or discarded items enter the marine environment every day, making marine debris one of the most widespread pollution problems facing us today. Learn how you can make a difference.
Jill will also answer any questions you may have that pertain to Lake Erie water quality considering the current Harmful Algae Bloom issues.
Steele Memorial Bandstand and Gazebo (number 29 on the Lakeside Chautauqua map). Because the Gazebo is an outdoor venue, the Lake Erie Science program will be moved to the Pavilion East Deck (number 26) if rain is expected.
Once you are within the Lakeside Gates, you’ll turn left onto Maple Avenue and travel north until you reach the end and the lake is in front of you, then turn right/east toward the Bandstand.
Directions and a map of the Lakeside campus can be found on the Lakeside website. Once on the Marblehead Peninsula, be sure to follow the directions on this website and not GPS because during the Chautauqua Season, Lakeside is a gated community and only certain entrances are open.
