PORTAGE, Ind. (AP) — A research vessel is giving visitors to Lake Michigan a chance to explore the lake aboard a floating laboratory.
The 65-foot W.G. Jackson is operated by an institute located at Grand Valley State University in Muskegon, Mich. The outreach and education vessel made a stop this week at the Port of Indiana in Portage, where it hosted tours focusing on water quality, invasive species and other topics.
The Times of Munster reports (http://bit.ly/11sMK4b ) the boat's visit was sponsored by the Lake Michigan Lakewide Management Plan. That project is funded by a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant.
The vessel tours Lake Michigan and allows visitors to learn about the lake while participating in experiments.
