LSSU’s Center for Freshwater Research and Education Opens in Sault Ste. Marie

For millennia, the St. Marys River near Freshwater Research and Education (CFRE), extensive, north-facing glass curtain wall Sault Ste. Marie has been a gathering place for water, fish, and people: the icy waters of Lake Superior flow into Lake Huron in a 21-foot elevation drop, schools of whitefish navigate the river’s waters, and several thousand years ago, the native Anishinaabe began to gather in the summer to fish and to renew community bonds along this great life-giving, fish-filled waterway in an area indigenous people call Bahweting.
