Celebrate the 10th Annual
Lake Superior Day!
Sunday, July 21, 2013
Since 2004, the Lake Superior Binational Forum has promoted an annual celebration of the world's largest freshwater lake on the third Sunday in July. This day is for anyone who lives near, visits, dreams about, makes a living with, manages, or cherishes the waters and land of the Lake Superior basin.
The Lake Superior Binational Forum encourages residents and friends of the Lake Superior basin and beyond to celebrate their connection to the lake and its human and natural environments. In 2012, more than 60 groups and communities participated in some way by offering:
• kayak races or tours
• beach clean ups and picnics
• tours of wastewater treatment facilities and lighthouses
• musical concerts
• library displays and public movies
• church services
• public festivals and art shows
• signed proclamations that pledge to protect water quality
• many other events and activities

The Lake Superior Binational Program represents a partnership of federal, state, provincial, and First Nations/tribal governments working together with citizens to ensure the protection of the Lake Superior basin ecosystem. The Lake Superior Binational Forum is a citizen stakeholder group of Americans and Canadians who work together to provide input to governments about these efforts and to educate basin residents about ways to protect and restore the lake basin's natural resources.
The Forum is funded in the U.S. by the Environmental Protection Agency/Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The U.S. Coordinator is located at the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute at Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin.
