Lake Erie Center Facilities
Inside the Lake Erie Center
The lobby entry-way of the LEC transports visitors into the world of Art and Science. Large windows and warm lighting create an inviting atmosphere where guests can socialize, read, or enjoy the view of Lake Erie. The gallery provides students and local artists an exquisite and unique space to present their work and take in the creative energies of others. The space is also utilized as a meeting space by various groups and organizations.
Our conference room has all the amenities to enhance your presentations: a spacious conference table, dry-board, projector display, adjustable overhead lighting, and plenty of room to move about with ease. The conference room is enclosed with an entire glass wall that allows plenty of light.
Environmental Wet Lab
The wet lab's design and construction accommodates research and support for the often
muddy and wet research projects undertaken at the LEC. In support of these projects
lake water is filtered and pumped directly from our own intake in the bay. Superior
drainage and rugged construction materials further the support of aquatic research
at the LEC. Well lit and heated, this lab allows an all seasons research capability
for Lake Erie projects.
