Our Changing Lake

On 24 March 2010 at 7 pm author and sailor Susan Peterson Gateley will present a program on recent changes in Lake Ontario--“History, a Mystery, Buried Treasure Tales, and How They are Shaping the Lake and Our Lives Today" at the Ontario Public Library. This illustrated talk will interest lake watchers, beach combers, boaters, and others with an interest in our great lake. During a illustrated 'virtual voyage' around the lake, Skipper Sue will share observations and information on the lake and some of the major changes she has observed here during 40 years of sailing its waters and exploring its shoreline. Some of those changes are for the better, and some, for those who drink from a public water supply, are not so much so. Nearly all the changes in the lake have potential to eventually impact our own well being consider ably.

The talk is based on Peterson Gateley's most recent book “Twinkle Toes and The Riddle of the Lake”, published in 2009. She has written a half dozen books on Lake Ontario's beaches, maritime heritage, and its ecology. She 'discovered' Lake Ontario as child, but found her perspective on its importance to the area greatly broadened after she began single-handing a 23 foot wooden sloop around the lake. Her latest book Twinkle Toes and The Riddle of the Lake, was published in 2009 and details how a crabby cat learned about Lake Ontario.
