“Watershed Learning on The Great Lakes,” the group that is studying water this winter and spring, will focus on lakefront history, particularly the lighthouse and the wildflower garden, at its April 8 meeting.

The group will meet from 10 a.m. to noon on April 8 at Arrington Lakefront Lagoon Shelter.

Clare Tallon Ruen, who conceived the idea and created the series, says water is “a defining feature of our geography and of our social, economic, political, cultural, and spiritual lives. Evanston’s location on the southwest shore of Lake Michigan, one of the five Great Lakes in the Great Lakes Watershed, means that we are some of the major beneficiaries and caretakers of the largest system of freshwater on the surface of earth.”
