Officials and guests turn the first layer of dirt on Lake Superior State University’s $13.2-million Center for Freshwater Research and Education (CFRE) on July 20 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
Slated for completion by summer 2020, CFRE is actually two undertakings in one.
A new 17,500 square-foot building will bear the name of Center benefactors Richard and Theresa Barch, and will anchor community, educational and research activities. LSSU’s existing Aquatic Research Laboratory (ARL) will remain open while being significantly renovated and expanded into a dedicated hatchery.
