Cruise & Learn on the Sandpiper

This summer the MAAC sponsored a Water Quality Boat Cruise, co-hosted by Partners for Clean Streams and Lucas Soil & Water Conservation District. On August 6th, 78 passengers cruised up and down the Maumee River on the Sandpiper Boat for two hours, all the while listening and learning from local water quality experts. Discussion topics included basic information about water quality, non-point and point source pollution, harmful algal blooms, our drinking water, and the Toledo Water Crisis that happened two years ago. Passengers also enjoyed a trivia game, featuring questions about our local waterways. The MAAC is proud to have sponsored such a successful event, one that the local community seemed very interested in.
