Waterfowl death photos


By Jud Yalkut

Virginia Burroughs, a Dayton artist currently residing in Celina, has documented the numerous horrifying deaths of waterfowl at Grand Lake St. Mary’s due to the dangerous blue-green algae blooms this summer. An exhibit of these powerful photographs, taken in the channel area of Harbor Point, will be on display at the Wright State University Lake Campus Learning Center through Friday, November 19. Residents of the area had never seen anything like the horrors to be found in channels and along seawalls, which had been deemed dangerous for fish, pets and humans. The exhibition is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. There will be a reception Sunday, September 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. Directions: Take I-75 North to exit 110, turn left on Rt. 33, then 12.8 miles where it becomes Rt. 29, 4.3 miles to a left onto Riley Road, right onto Rt. 703, to WSU Lake Campus and Trenary Hall. For more information, call (419) 586-0333.
