Scarecrow Workshop
Tuesday, October 7; 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Wood County Historical Center

13660 County Home Road, Bowling Green

Join in on the fun of the fall tradition of building scarecrows. We provide the straw, string, support pole, and refreshments; you bring scarecrow clothes, decoration, and support for the scarecrow's back and arms (to attach to the display pole, if needed). You can take it home or enter it in our annual Scarecrow Contest to win cash prizes. Forms will be available at the workshop. Contest scarecrows will be left on display for our October 18th Folklore and Funfest at the Historical Center. Leaders: Jim Witter and Craig Spicer

Lake Erie Blue Scum, Toxic Microcystin - and Your Health

Wednesday, October 8; 7:00-8:00 p.m.

W.W. Knight Nature Preserve: Hankison Great Room

29530 White Road, Perrysburg

Microcystins are in our drinking water. As problems with the algae in Lake Erie affect our public water system, it is critical that we understand how serious it can be. Dr. Earl W. Campbell, Jr. MD, emeritus professor of Medicine, MCO-U Toledo, helps us understand cyanobacteria, its unique survival features, and the microcystin toxin it produces. Dr. Campbell discusses dangerous long-term and short-term health effects of microcystin on humans, including cancer and death. The presentation will include current recommendations from the International Joint Commission report of the Lake Erie Ecosystem Priority. Sponsored by Lake Erie Waterkeeper Alliance, Perrysburg League of Women Voters, and Perrysburg Boat Club.
