WHY SURF WHEN YOU CAN DIVE INTO THE GREAT LAKES!
EXPLORE "OUR GREAT LAKES" ON ONTARIO'S GREEN LANE WEB SITE
http://www.cciw.ca/glimr/intro-e.html

Environment Canada is proud to present OUR GREAT LAKES,  the premier source
for current and historical information on the Great Lakes Basin Ecosystem.
OUR GREAT LAKES replaces the Great Lakes Information Management Resource
(GLIMR), with improved navigability, a new look and a new name. OUR GREAT
LAKES is housed on Ontario Region's Green Lane web site, which promotes and
facilitates public access to environmental information.

Building on GLIMR's success, OUR GREAT LAKES provides visitors with a
client-driven menu and highlights such items as the Department's current
Great Lakes 2000 Program  and activities surrounding the next phase of the
initiative on the Great Lakes Beyond 2000 page.  For current news releases,
recently launched web pages and upcoming events, check out What's Making
News.  If maps interest you, explore Great Maps, for a selection of
internally developed maps including the Great Lakes Drainage Basin and
Selected Areas on the Niagara Peninsula that are Susceptible to Groundwater
Contamination.

Additional menu topics include:

* Weather, Climate and Water Levels - These "hot" topics are featured on one
user-friendly page, providing related information and valuable links to
weather forecasts for Ontario, and the greatly anticipated, "Water Level
News";

* State of the Great Lakes - Details the current health of the Great Lakes,
how their health is measured and reported; and,

* Educational Resources, Great Links and Success Stories - A quick source
for Environment Canada's Great Lakes-related information; a page housing
links to partner sites, non-governmental organizations and universities;
and, a page devoted to the people and organizations making a difference in
contributing towards the health of the Great Lakes Basin Ecosystem.
