For more than 140 years, Lakeside Chautauqua has welcomed thousands of families to the Lake Erie shore to take part in a summer experience dedicated to nurturing the mind, body and spirit. Over time, the lake water has battled with the increasing growth of algae prohibiting families from swimming in the lake.
