Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the Making a Great Lake Superior 2007 conference, being held in Duluth, Minnesota from October 29 to 31, 2007. This conference is focused on the most pressing issues facing the Lake Superior ecosystem and incorporates how research, education, and resource management are attempting to address these issues. We look forward to lively dialogue among people of different disciplines, and we will also be holding facilitated workgroups to develop recommendations and priorities for future research, education, outreach, and management.

Protecting and restoring the Great Lakes is of binational importance. Research continues to provide important insights on ecosystem functions, the impacts of human activities, and effective ways to reduce those impacts. Education and outreach provide vital links among basin residents and stakeholders, researchers, and resource managers. The needs of basin communities are evolving as populations change and economic and cultural paradigms shift. Making a Great Lake Superior 2007 will unite people throughout the Lake Superior Watershed in discussions about: 

·       Transforming research results into effective protection and restoration of Lake Superior,  

·       How management approaches and projects reflect priorities,

·       Information needs of land and resource managers, and how this information can best be brought to bear on critical issues

·       The role of educators to help ensure accurate information about Lake Superior is reaching the right audiences in the right way, and

·       The role of citizen groups and individuals in protecting Lake Superior.
