Tuesday on Lake Effect: Environmentalism, Making Face Masks, Venue Support, Backyard Chickens

Tuesday on Lake Effect

We continue our conversation on environmentalism and coronavirus. Then, a project by local arts organizations is putting masks and face shields in the hands of frontline workers. We learn how venues across the U.S. are banding together to survive the COVID-19 shutdown. Plus, as the trend of raising backyard chickens grows in Milwaukee, we speak to one local business owner who has made it her mission to help.
