What's Going on in Our Great Lakes?

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The Great Lakes alone contain one-fifth of the world’s supply of surface freshwater—the greatest single freshwater resource on the planet. Yet, despite their size, these lakes are surprisingly fragile and are subject to a host of complex and interacting stresses. In his Academy Talk, Dr. J. Val Klump explores what is happening in the Great Lakes today and what the future holds for them and for us.

Presented at the Mead Public Library by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters in partnership with the Mead Public Library Foundation, this Academy Talk was recorded on September 27, 2017, by WSCS - Sheboygan's Community Station.
