Lake Effect Weekend: Coronavirus DOC Care, Bubbler Talk, Rural-Urban Divide, Family Gardening

This weekend on Lake Effect

We talk about coronavirus safety precautions with an inmate under the care of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. Bubbler Talk explores how Milwaukee County is reducing the number of inmates during this pandemic. Then, a look at the urban-rural divide in Wisconsin and why reopening businesses could be particularly dangerous for rural Wisconsinites. Plus, we learn how gardening can inspire creativity and expend some energy, for kids stuck at home.
