As part of Bowling Green State University’s fall focus on water quality, a panel discussion on Lake Erie will be held Nov. 12.

Dr. George Bullerjahn, Distinguished Research Professor of Biology and director of BGSU’s Great Lakes Center for Fresh Waters and Human Health, will moderate a panel discussion on “The Future of Lake Erie,” with Dr. Timothy Davis, the Patrick L. and Debra Scheetz Ryan Endowed Professor in Biology, and several regional experts embracing many points of view.

The discussion will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in 207 Bowen-Thompson Student Union. A reception will follow from 7:45 to 9 in the Wankelman Gallery at the Fine Arts Center.

Earlier in the day, “Water in Crisis,” poster presentations by student in arts, sciences and humanities, will be given from 2:30 to 5 in the second-floor clock tower mezzanine of the Union.

BGSU kicked off this water quality focus in October with a public talk about the Flint water crisis from Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, author of BGSU’s 2019 Common Read, “What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City.”

The BGSU Galleries are currently hosting two photography exhibits in the BGSU Fine Arts Center. “Lake Erie: On the Edge,” photographs by Linda Butler, is in the Willard Wankelman Gallery and “The Great Lake Erie,” featuring photography by Frank Gohlke and Lynn Whitney, is in the Dorothy Uber Bryan Gallery Lobby, both through Nov. 24. Gallery hours are 11 am. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, 6 to 9 p.m. Thursdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays.

All events are free and open to the public.
