Outreach

The Lake Superior Binational Forum is committed to engaging people with diverse perspectives who live in the Lake Superior basin and around the world to participate in our outreach campaigns that highlight ways to protect and restore the lake. You decide what action you want to take, then tell us about it at Speak Out!

  Bernie the Burn Barrel – Clearing the Air
Burning garbage such as packaging, plastic, food scraps or even newspapers and junk mail releases many pollutants including dioxins. These toxic chemicals settle on our fields, woods, water and soils. As a result, these substances accumulate in the foods we eat and eventually end up in our bodies. These toxins can cause serious health concerns, including cancer.
Pollution Prevention
Binational Forum members helped to facilitate implementation of a household hazardous waste collection event in Terrace Bay, Ontario. This was the first such collection ever held in Terrace Bay.
