Mysteries of the Great Lakes on the Big Green Screen

The Big Green Screen movie theater at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center presents Mysteries of the Great Lakes every Saturday in February at 1pm. Mysteries of the Great Lakes will take you on a journey through the greatest lake system in the world, and showcases the amazing geography, ecology, science and history of the region. The story unfolds about a population of lake sturgeon. A once thriving junk fish, burned as fuel for its high oil content, was decimated when its eggs became popular as caviar. Here is the story of the efforts to save this species told against the history of the Great Lakes. Movie is 45 minutes long and starts at 1pm on Feb. 5, 12, 19, and 26th. There is no fee and no registration. Program may be modified or cancelled at discretion of park staff.  

For more information, please contact the Presque Isle State Park office, located on the second floor of the Tom Ridge Environmental Center, at 814-833-7424.  The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 AM – 4 PM. If you need an accommodation to participate in park activities due to a disability, please contact the park you plan to visit.
