The Great Lakes Wiki

GLIN Site of the Month The Great Lakes Wiki is devoted to the citizens of the Great Lakes and their stories about our great natural resources. The web site uses special software that enables anyone to add articles and content, or edit the content of others. Established as a response to a lack of environmental coverage of Great Lakes stories by the region's newspapers, the wiki broadens the possibilities of sharing information and building a Great Lakes community.
