Do you have questions about what's happening with water levels on the Great Lakes, now and in the months to come? We certainly do!

So we at Fishtown Preservation, in partnership with the Leland Township Library, invited Mark Breederland from Michigan Sea Grant to give us an update and an overview.

Mark has always been a great (and knowledgeable) friend to Fishtown, and we hope you find his presentation as eye-opening (and hopeful) as we have.
