Women & Philanthropy Grant Used for New Research Vessel

A 21-foot R/V Spangler research vessel was purchased for UToledos’s Lake Erie Center thanks to $50,000 in grant funding from Women & Philanthropy. This new vessel will replace a 20-year-old boat that UToledo’s Lake Erie Center had to retire. It was only four feet longer than the new boat, but that was enough to limit the places it could go.

As a smaller vessel, this new fleet addition can be launched from more locations and go well up major tributaries, such as the Maumee River, as well as multiple western Lake Erie sampling areas that larger boats go. The center’s other research vessel is pretty much confined to western Lake Erie.

Tom Bridgeman, UT Lake Erie Center director and ecology professor said the new boat will significantly advance research efforts because of its versatility.
