Boat Show Supports Ohio Sea Grant, Stone Lab

Support Lake Erie with your trip to the Cleveland Mid-America Boat & Fishing Show on Lake Erie Day, Monday, Jan. 16, when one dollar from each ticket purchased will benefit Ohio State University’s Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory. The Sea Grant display will highlight aquatic invasive species, including Asian carp, harmful algal blooms, as well as general information about Stone Lab and Lake Erie issues. Kristin Thomas, the “Island Snake Lady,” will be on hand to talk about the Lake Erie watersnake and will have some slithery friends with her. Learn more about the boat show at
