The great lakes of North America are being endangered progressively by unremitting human intervention. While the Governments are also stepping in, the people have taken the initiative to protect their natural inheritance. Celebrating 24th July as Lake Superior day is part of that effort.
The 20th July initiative : The Lake Superior day
The 20th of July will be celebrated by a large number of Northlanders as the ‘Lake Superior Day’, an event full of concerts, community events and awareness campaigns to create awareness about the Great lakes, and the dangers imposed on its ecosystem by various direct and indirect human interventions. People from across United States and Canada joined the event in their own way, while the world - networked through the web and the media - watched and learnt a lesson or two in natural history and environmental economics.
