GLIN==> Two new sections on TEACH Great Lakes!




TEACH Great Lakes has released two new modules in the pollution section:
Non-native invasive species and urban sprawl.

Non-native invasive species:
http://www.great-lakes.net/teach/pollution/ans/ans_1.html
More than 140 non-native species have become established in and around
the Great Lakes since the 1800s. This new section discusses the Zebra
Mussel as well as other species making headlines, ballast transport, and
current prevention and control strategies. Links to distribution maps
are also included.

Urban Sprawl:
http://www.great-lakes.net/teach/pollution/sprawl/sprawl_1.html
Many communities in the Great Lakes region are feeling the effects of
urban sprawl: loss of farmland, destruction of wildlife habitats, loss
of community. This section describes the causes and effects of sprawl as
well as some some current solutions to the problem.

The Education And Curriculum Homesite (TEACH Great Lakes), a new
component of the
Great Lakes Information Network, focuses on advancing Great
Lakes-related educational materials for the broad audience of educators
and students in the Great Lakes region and beyond. TEACH Great Lakes can
be found at http://www.great-lakes.net/teach/.
