Great Lakes Calendar
CHAOS Summer Meeting
CHAOS is a community for sharing knowledge and resources about natural hazards that affect Lake Superior’s coastal communities. CHAOS will be hosting its summer meeting virtually on Wednesday, July 28. Please register to join us.
Brandon Krumwiede and Rebecca Nicodemus from NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management will share the Digital Coast with us. We will learn more about what tools and data are available for the Great Lakes, see demonstrations of using the site, and learn about available support for communities and stakeholders.
In 2016, Saxon Harbor was decimated during a storm event, with damages to the marina and campground. Now five years later, the harbor has recently celebrated it reopening. Eric Peterson, Forest Administrator for Iron County, will share about the recovery and restoration of Saxon Harbor. We will learn more about the collaborative efforts to make Saxon Harbor more resilient to future storm events.
