Participants will have the opportunity to learn about how the Tri-Cities evolved into a thriving Great Lakes hub for transportation, commerce, industry and tourism, all while viewing these historic locations from the water. A university representative will also be on board to talk about how current activity in and around our local waterways can affect water quality and the environment.
