Lake Superior is the cleanest, coldest and clearest of the Great Lakes. The largest lake by surface area in the world, it fuels our local shipping, commercial fishing and recreational industries while providing a source for clean drinking water. Every day, each of the 600,000 human residents of the Lake Superior basin use water from the lake for drinking, home use, industrial use or recreation. The lake is essential for countless fish, birds, animals and plants.
Lake Superior Day was started in the early 1990s to highlight the importance of this great water body to the basin's environment and economy. This year's event is coordinated by the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve, a federal reserve encompassing over 16,000 acres along the St. Louis River freshwater estuary. Lake Superior NERR is one of four research facilities at UW-Superior.
