Burning River: The event that transformed Cleveland’s Flats & influenced national policy

June 22 @ 2:00 pm

Free

The Foundry Community Rowing and Sailing Center, in partnership with Destination Cleveland, are pleased to welcome Dr. John Hartig, a Fulbright Scholar whose research focuses on cleanup of the Great Lakes. Hartig will delve into how public outcry over the 1969 Cuyahoga river fire catalyzed river cleanup locally and nationally, and helped to revitalize the Flats.

The talk on the 50th anniversary of the final Cuyahoga River fire is free, but you must register.
