“Multiple record high levels were set on the Great Lakes in 2019 and 2020 resulting in increased risks from erosion and coastal flooding”— US Army Corp of Engineers

High Great Lake levels affect West Michigan, eroding lakeshore property, damaging public parks and natural spaces.  Experts will present data, information, and images documenting the impacts of rising lake levels.   Deanna Apps, US Army Corp of Engineers Lead Forecaster, will give a presentation entitled “Rising Great Lakes Levels”.  Curtis TerHaar, coordinator of park planning and development for Ottawa County Parks will speak on lakeshore erosion and impacts to Ottawa Parks.
