Polo Public Library will host a program about The Great Lakes, one of the great natural wonders of the world not often included on such lists. The lecture, “Greatness Explained: The Great Lakes” will take place on Saturday, July 13, from 10:30 a.m.to 11:30 on the lower level of the library, 302 W. Mason St., Polo (lift available).
The presenter, Dr. Norman Moline, is a Professor of Geography at Augustana College. He will identify the many links within the Great Lakes watershed and with adjoining watersheds, elaborate on their historical significance for the nation and for our region, and focus on some of the current environmental and political issues which impact Illinois and other states bordering these lakes.
This lecture is produced in part by the Illinois Humanities Council's Road Scholars Speakers Bureau. It is free and open to the public, though donations will be accepted at the door.
