When Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax was created, Lake Erie had a reputation for being polluted. But by 1985, the lake had recovered so much that two graduate students who were studying under Ohio Sea Grant’s education coordinator Dr. Rosanne Fortner wrote to Dr. Seuss to ask him to update his book.
Ohio Sea Grant combines research, education and outreach efforts, as well as partnerships with academia, governmental agencies and the private sector, to work with the Lake Erie community to solve the region’s most important environmental and economic issues.
Stone Laboratory, Ohio Sea Grant’s education and outreach facility on Lake Erie, serves scientists from across the Great Lakes region, offering lab facilities, field work equipment, research vessels and housing for researchers studying Lake Erie.
