impacting both the U.S. and Canada sides of the river and out into Lake

New Report: GREENING THE GOVERNMENTS
http://www.mecprotects.org/greening.pdf
The Michigan Environmental Council has released the results of a 
yearlong study comparing environmental conditions in the Great Lakes 
region. This 72-page report assesses the "environmental conditions and 
performance of the Great Lakes states" by choosing key environmental 
indicators and program measurements, enabling citizens to form their own 
judgments about how the states compare.

Protect Your Waters and STOP AQUATIC HITCHHIKERS!
http://www.protectyourwaters.net/
"Aquatic Hitchhikers" are defined as non-native, harmful aquatic plants, 
animals or microscopic organisms that can readily be transported to 
other waters via popular recreational activities, such as boating, 
fishing, swimming and SCUBA diving. Follow these Simple Prevention 
Procedures <http://www.protectyourwaters.net/prevention/> to help stop 
the spread of invasive species in the Great Lakes, and all inland lakes 
and connecting channels.

Great Lakes CHILDREN'S MUSEUM
http://www.glcm.org/
Now open in Traverse City, Mich., the museum provides interactive, fun 
learning opportunities -- everything from a freighter to a kid-sized 
lighthouse to a water cycle exhibit, which allows visitors to "be" the 
water! Kids can also "sail the lakes" in the pilot house of a Great 
Lakes freighter, measure and record current weather conditions, and get 
a birds-eye view of their surroundings with the museum's periscope.
