Our Great Lakes – How are they doing?
From Lake Erie and Michigan, to the smaller bodies of freshwater near you, show us the environmental health of our lakes today.
DOCUMERICA is full of stories of pollution back then. In one case, there is a desperate attempt to pour chlorine off of a beach to try and make the water swimmable. What has 40 years of greater environmental awareness done? What are the issues that remain to be tackled today?
Over the weekend, use your camera as a tool to show us the issues or stories of success near you. We’ve provided a few “Then” examples below. It is up to you to document “Now”.
Share scenes of our freshwater lakes today, with State of the Environment. Match an earlier scene from DOCUMERICA so we can all see the change, or simply share a view from a place as you see it.
To search DOCUMERICA, follow this helpful guide.
State of the Environment is about your perspective. Photos may be submitted from around the world to State of the Environment on Flickr through the end of 2013.
