An annual monthlong celebration of Lake Erie, featuring 50 shoreline activities, lectures, and cleanups, begins today with a hike at the Mentor Lagoons Nature Preserve in Mentor, Ohio.
Collectively listed under the umbrella of an annual observance called Coastweeks, a third of the events are within an hour's drive of Toledo. They include a tour of the historic glacial grooves on Kelleys Island on Aug. 29 and a sandcastle-building competition at East Harbor State Park on Sept. 4.

Cleanups scheduled for Lake Erie's western basin include the Eighth Annual Maumee Watershed Clean Your Stream Day beginning at 8 a.m. Sept. 11 along area streams; a Maumee Bay State Park cleanup at 10 a.m. Sept. 18, at the park's nature center; an Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge cleanup at 9 a.m. Sept. 18 at the north end of Yondota Road in Curtice, Ohio, and at a Sheldon Marsh State Nature Preserve cleanup at 8 a.m. Sept. 18.
