EXPERIENCE THE GREAT LAKES this weekend: Take a harbor cruise!
http://www.autoclubgroup.com/michigan/travel/michigan_living/harbor_cruises.asp
 From a tall-ship adventure on the "Appledore" in Bay City to a 
catamaran cruise, water-based tours draw tourists to Great Lakes 
harbors. Or, if you're more into staying on dry land, try a dune scooter 
ride along the west Michigan coast.

H2infO: The WATER INFORMATION NETWORK
http://www.h2info.org/
Based in Toronto, Ontario, H2infO aims to improve municipal water 
quality, quantity and flow by fostering and supporting community-based 
programs and increasing civic participation in efforts to control 
non-point sources of water pollution.

Lake Superior FishCAM
http://www.duluth.com/fishcam/
Get a live glimpse of what it's like 35 feet below enormous Lake 
Superior! This is one of the only permanently mounted underwater cameras 
in the world sending images back to the shore.

PLANT COMMUNITIES of the Midwest
http://www.abi.org/publications/midwest/index.htm
Midwestern plant communities -- from Great Plains grasslands to the 
dense boreal forests that frame the shores of the Great Lakes and from 
northern peatland bogs to dry, Ozark glades -- have long fascinated 
plant ecologists. Now a comprehensive survey of all the natural plant 
communities found in this 12-state region is available in a single volume.
