Across the country dams are being removed, and that means big changes for those rivers and some of the communities along them. Learn more about what happens when these dams are built and what happens when they come down in this Great Lakes Now watch party.
The event was held in conjunction with the PBS documentary series “The Age of Nature,” which broadcasts on PBS stations across the country in October 2020.
In this watch party, originally broadcast on Facebook on Oct. 19, 2020, Great Lakes Now Program Director Sandra Svoboda chats with Great Lakes Now writer Lorraine Boissoneault, Dr. Michael Paterson, research scientist with the International Institute for Sustainable Development’s Experimental Lakes Area in Canada, and Dr. Marc Gaden with the Great Lakes Fishery Commission.
This watch party was co-hosted by Great Lakes Now at Detroit Public Television, The Nature Conservancy Michigan, the International Institute for Sustainable Development’s Experimental Lakes Area and the Great Lakes Fishery Commission.
