There is so much to do on the weekend! Spend a little time at one of these Celebrate Water events.

This weekend Edgewood Orchard Galleries, Margaret Lockwood Gallery, and Woodwalk Gallery continue their water themed exhibits.

On June 2 or 3, stop by Peninsula State Park from 10am-4pm to see a 600-gallon tank filled with LIVE native fish! Visitors learn fishy facts and there are kids activities and prizes offered too. The program is free but you do need a park vehicle sticker.

Also on June 2, the Door County Community Foundation is hosting the opening reception for their exhibit, “Water Works”, featuring art by Emmett Johns. The opening is from 4:30-6pm.

Miller Art Museum also hosts their opening reception on June 2 from 5-6:30pm for their exhibit, “Our Water Stories”. This exhibit celebrates and explores our most precious and vital resource: water. This show will serve as a platform for the Door County community to join together and engage in meaningful dialogue as it pertains to local water-based issues.

The Great Lakes make up 84% of North America’s surface fresh water and about 21% of the world’s supply of surface fresh water.

The Great Lakes water system is the largest inland shipping system in the world.

The only Great Lake entirely within the U.S. is Lake Michigan.

Lake Michigan’s shores hold the largest fresh water sand dunes in the world.

The Great Lakes were formed due to glacial movements that caused depressions in the earth that eventually filled with water.

Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are considered one lake hydrologically since they are connected by the Straits of Mackinac.

Although it falls under the category of what we define as a lake, Lake Superior acts more like an inland sea.

There are 9,000-year-old animal-herding structures below Lake Huron.

The Lake Huron shoreline extends 3,827 miles and encompasses 30,000 islands. It is the longest shoreline of the Great Lakes.

The water in Lake Erie is recycled every 2.6 years, the shortest of any Great Lake.
