Media Release: In the May episode of the Wisconsin Sea Grant Lake Talks, guest speakers from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism will examine the role of Great Lakes tourism in the Wisconsin economy. They will also share their ideas for fun summer vacation.
The Lake Talks are informal, interactive presentations on topics related to the Great Lakes, particularly topics relating to Lake Michigan. Given the ongoing pandemic, these public events are currently being offered through Zoom.
On Thursday, May 6th, from 7pm to 8pmwill be the featured speakers Anne Sayers, Acting Secretary for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and Director of the Outdoor Recreation Office Mary Monroe Brown.
As the primary driver of visits to Wisconsin, outdoor recreation is critical to the success of our state’s tourism industry. With 800 miles of shoreline on the Great Lakes, Wisconsin’s vibrant coastal communities invite visitors to experience the state’s rich outdoor heritage and natural wonders.
Sayers and Brown will discuss how tourism and outdoor recreation are intertwined and work together to create stunning economic impacts for Wisconsin. They also provide tips on what to see and do on your next Great Lakes adventure.
