Environmental Defence, an organization dedicated to “clean water, a safe climate and healthy communities”, has released a photo series about people and their connection to Lake Erie. The Grand River is a major tributary of Lake Erie, which has faced enormous challenges from agricultural and industrial runoff. Any degradation of water quality in the Grand is a threat to the health of the lake.
Because of COVID-19, a planned exhibition of the photos has been cancelled. Instead, the photo essay, entitled North of Long Tail has been made freely available on the Environmental Defence website, at https://environmentaldefence.ca/northoflongtail/patricia-pelee-island/. Learn more about Lake Erie and its people.
