Phyllis Green, Superintendent of Isle Royal National Park, is our speaker at our next meeting, December 7th, at 7:00 pm at Lake Superior College in room E-2370. Phyllis will give a presentation on her work to develop a quick and effective system to treat the ballast water on ships in the Great Lakes to prevent the spread of invasive species. Current regulations do not provide adequate protection for the Great Lakes. There is great need for a more robust system to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species via the discharge of millions of gallon of ballast water into our harbors.
Phyllis will also answer other questions we may have about the park, such as the current status of wolves and moose on Isle Royal.
As always, our programs are free and open to the
public. For more information, contact Rich Staffon at 218-879-3186.
