GLIN Site of the Month Urbanization and rural development are placing pressure on western Lake Superior streams and nearshore zones. LakeSuperiorStreams uses web-based delivery and interactive animations of real-time stream data to address sustainability issues in western Superior watersheds. It incorporates interpretive information, curricula, and a site design toolkit to educate contractors/consultants, developers/realtors, students/teachers, homeowners, agencies and decision-makers. A Regional Stormwater Protection Team (22 organizations) was created that collaborates to deliver common educational messages, workshops, tools and approaches to this audience.

Web Dialogue on Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement

Join residents from across the basin and a panel of experts from November 29-December 2 to discuss issues for the governments of Canada and the United States to consider when they review the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.

Great Lakes, Great Michigan

Known as the "Great Lakes, Great Michigan" platform, the proposal calls for comprehensive water use laws that will prevent adverse impacts on our waterways and natural resources, stop water from being diverted from the Great Lakes basin, require legislative approval for the private sale of water and require all water users to report their use to the state.

Wisconsin Wetlands Association

Wisconsin Wetlands Association was established in 1969 to protect the state's wetland resources through education, training, advocacy, and research on key issues that affect wetlands. WWA is the only statewide organization focused exclusively on wetland protection.

Great Lakes Center for Environmental and Molecular Sciences (GLEAMS)

GLEAMS is a unique partnership between Western Michigan University and Altarum, bringing together deep domain expertise in the fields of molecular genomics, environmental chemistry and geospatial informatics. This web portal is designed to serve as a "one-stop-shop" for data and information on the Great Lakes.
