The Cuyahoga River. 50 Years After the Infamous Fire

Date/Time

Oct 18, 2019
07:00 PM until 08:00 PM

Description

 

On Friday, October 18 at 7pm, join Cary Institute for a presentation by Dr. John Hartig, Great Lakes Science-Policy Advisor to the International Association for Great Lakes Research. Hartig will discuss how strategies like pollution mitigation and habitat rehabilitation are reviving this iconic river.

In 1969, when the Cuyahoga River last caught fire, the river's fish community was critically depleted.  Today, it is home to 70 species of fish, and peregrine falcons, bald eagles and osprey have returned to its banks.

The Cuyahoga River's revival has transformed the Cleveland Flats from an industrial wasteland into a community where nature, commerce, and industry thrive together.

The event will be held in the Cary Institute auditorium. Registration for general admission is required; seating is first come, first served. Registration does not guarantee a seat inside the auditorium.
