The Alliance for the Great Lakes is hosting beach clean-up events this month – including several at locations along Lake Erie.

About 40 people came out on Saturday to clean up at Edgewater Beach. Katie Corr, an education specialist at Cleveland MetroParks Zoo, led a group of Miami University grad students who are studying environmental stewardship. She says since the MetroParks took over the beach in 2013, it’s been cleaner. But they’re still finding some of the same items each year.

The swimming portion of the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championship in Cleveland is good to go for this weekend.

Heavy rainfall this week spiked bacteria levels in Lake Erie, causing Edgewater Park’s beach to close until Thursday.
