L.L. Smith Jr. environmental research vessel

The L.L. Smith Jr., a research vessel owned by the University of Wisconsin, is used to provide environmental education programs around Lake Superior. During the school year, the Smith takes area school children on 3 hour cruises in and just outside the harbor. In the summer, they move out to other communities on Lake Superior where the cruises are open to the public. Today, they leave Duluth to provide 4 programs in Two Harbors on Friday and Saturday. The emphasis in these programs will be on water quality. The boat will return Saturday evening. Photo taken July 18, 2005.
