Greener and Cleaner: How a Marina Takes Big Strides Toward Cleaner Water
The River Talks, a series of informal science presentations, returns for the season with “Greener and Cleaner: How a Marina Takes Big Strides Toward Cleaner Water.” **DUE TO WEATHER, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CHANGED TO AN INDOOR PRESENTATION** This River Talk will focus on environmental improvements at marinas and will touch on those happening at Barker’s Island in Superior.
Three speakers –Theresa Qualls with the Wisconsin Clean Marina Program, Eric Thomas with Barker’s Island Marina and Michael Krick with the city of Superior – will describe projects designed to control stormwater runoff and prevent pollution on the island at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Marinas attract customers who care deeply about sustaining water quality. With support from the Clean Marina Program, the city of Superior and many partners, Barker’s Island Marina has taken great strides over the past few years to install an engineered wetland and a large boat wash station. Tour participants will visit these innovative projects and learn more about the Clean Marina Program.
**DUE TO WEATHER, THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER HOSTING A WALKING TOUR** Instead, there will be a presentation held INDOORS at the Lake Superior Estuarium on Barker’s Island (3 Marina Dr.). It will last from 5-6 p.m. and will include time for Q&A. This is an in-person event, and will not be recorded or live-streamed. Masks are required to be worn in the building.
