  • Two programs explore the importance of the Great Lakes and how the people of Wisconsin are connected to them, and examine the economic and environmental issues that affect this water resource. The first program looks at the Great Lakes Compact, the invasive quagga mussel, and a new management plan for the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. The second program reports on the restoration of the Raspberry Island Lighthouse, the Blue Wave Beach in Racine, and one Ojibwe tribal elder's connection to the lakes.
