'LAKE ERIE LEGENDS' is a 12-part mini-series offering a bird’s-eye view into the lives of citizen scientists, ecologists, artists, and government officials dedicated to Lake Erie environmental conservation.
'LAKE ERIE LEGENDS' Day 7 - Land takes us on a tour of Mentor Marsh, one of the largest natural marshes in Ohio, with preserve managers from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and The Nature Conservancy. Their successful efforts to combat invasive plant species and soon restore the ancient seed bank will realize Mentor Marsh as a top ecotourism destination of the Great Lakes.
