Michigan Great Lakes Protection Fund Forum
March 5, 2002
Kellogg Center Room 105 AB
9:00 a.m -  2:15 p.m.
Sponsor:  Office of the Great Lakes, Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality
The mission of the Michigan Great Lakes Protection Fund is to provide a
source of reliable funding for new research and demonstration projects
to preserve, enhance, and restore the Great Lakes and its component
ecosystems. Supported work contributes to our understanding of how
pollution enters and moves through the Great Lakes region, the
identification and reduction of human and wildlife health risks posed by
these problems, and the effects of habitat degradation on the health of
fish and wildlife in and around the Great Lakes. Emphasis is placed on
work that results in needed policy development or significant near-term
improvement in water quality, environmental health, and ecosystem
restoration. During this forum, various researchers will present the
results from their research funded by the Michigan Great Lakes
Protection Fund.
The Office of the Great Lakes in the Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality administers the Fund. Approximately $1-2,000,000
is available each year for research projects. Funds are distributed
through a competitive request for proposals process initiated each
spring. Proposals go through an extensive peer review and are also
reviewed by the Technical Advisory Board for the Fund. Details and
agenda are available on the Office of the Great Lakes web site at
Registration is free. Refreshments will be provided.  To register, or
