Abstract:

The Great Lakes basin is a melting pot of tradition and history. The same waters that nourish the region's wildlife have also shaped the customs of the people who live along its shores. Join us for a survey of the Great Lakes and the fascinating people and wildlife that surround them. We'll engage with cleanup efforts to keep the lakes healthy and vital, and will also take up an investigation into the sinking of the ship the Edmund Fitzgerald. A diverse group of citizens, these people have one common denominator: the survival of their culture is linked to the preservation of the lakes.
