Toledo Stories: Lake Erie: Ohio's Great Lake
Thursday, August 1 at 8:00 p.m.
WGTE's award-winning original production explores Lake Erie's impact on the history, economy, agriculture, recreation and industry of many Ohio communities.
Using rare archival film, striking photographs and high definition footage, WGTE illustrates how this invaluable natural resource influences virtually every aspect of the lives of those living near the lake. The program examines the geology of how the lake was created, the Native American presence, the settlement of the state, the recreation the lake provides, and the impact of industry, agriculture and human interaction on the lake itself.
This program is supported, in part, by the Ohio Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
