The Lake Superior Binational Forum has scheduled on open public meeting called “Mysteries of Lake Superior, from Top to Bottom” from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 28 at Barkers Island Inn, 300 Marina Drive, Superior.

The full agenda is available on the forum’s web site at under the meetings tab. All forum meetings are free and open to the public with no need to pre-register.
