Mysteries of the Great Lakes is as much a celebration of world’s greatest freshwater ecosystem as it is a rallying cry for protection. The story will take audiences on an inspiring voyage through these amazing inland seas and showcase the amazing geography, ecology, science, and history of the region.

SWAN Program Coordinator Dan Gray will facilitate a group discussion of our relationship to the Great Lakes following the 45 minutes film screening. Milwaukee Riverkeeper staff will present updates on Milwaukee Riverkeeper projects, programs and news.
