Making Lake MI Great

Making Lake Michigan Great

The W.G. Jackson makes its way around Lake Michigan on the Making Lake Michigan Great Tour to various ports of call in the summer. As a project of  the U.S. EPA's Lake Michigan Forum, the purpose of these annual tours is to spread the word about the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Lakewide Management Plan for Lake Michigan. Funded by the U.S. EPA Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the tours provide hands-on experience in water issues for the public aboard the W.G. Jackson and the D.J. Angus. There are cruises for students and the public, open houses, teacher workshops, and community events.  The Tour has reached 33 ports of call in Lake Michigan since 1998.
