Wisconsin's Coastal Wetlands on the Web
The Bureau of Endangered Resources in the Wisconsin Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) has published the preliminary results of an assessment of
Wisconsin's Coastal Wetlands on the DNR website.  The assessment and website
development were funded by a grant from the Wisconsin Coastal Management
Program.
In 2000, the Bureau of Endangered Resources (BER) initiated an assessment of
Wisconsin's Coastal Wetlands of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. The goal of
the project is to identify and characterize the "ecologically-significant
coastal wetland sites" for both of Wisconsin's Great Lakes. The ultimate
outcome of the project is to increase the public awareness of these coastal
wetlands and their importance by featuring these unique coastal wetland
jewels in a series of public products. The information contained on this
webpage is the beginning of these products, and serves as a library of the
data and findings that have resulted from the two phases of this project. In
addition, important information from other coastal wetland related projects
(past and future) will be added to this site in the near future. 

This webpage includes findings from the first two phases of the project. It
is anticipated that two additional phases will occur within the next two
years. At that time, the website will be fully operational and house all the
coastal wetland related information available through the Bureau of
Endangered Resources.
