Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge

GLIN Site of the Month The Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge story is that conservation initiatives are helping recreate gathering places for wildlife and people along the Detroit River and western Lake Erie, and that these unique conservation places enhance quality of life for enterprising businesses and communities. Equally important is that conservation is helping to provide an exceptional, outdoor, recreational experience to nearly 6 million people in the watershed. That, in turn, is helping to develop the next generation of conservationists.

St. Clair River portion of IJC Upper Lakes Study to be expedited

The IJC announced that its International Upper Great Lakes Study Board will expedite its study of the St. Clair River to determine whether changes in water levels are the result of natural or human influences. The Study will produce a draft report a full year ahead of schedule by February 2009.

Lake Erie: Beyond the Surface

On the surface, it looks like any other body of water. Yet the 11th largest lake on Earth has a deeper story to tell. The first 30-minute special aired in June, and is one of four programs dealing with the fate and future of Lake Erie. (The second part aired in mid October, to be followed by a special in January '08 and May of '08.) Here you can watch the special again, get the latest news regarding Lake Erie, and tap into valuable Lake Erie resources and experts.

Great Lakes Economic Initiative

The Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program, in partnership with a network of academic, public policy, business and civic organizations, began a multi-year research and policy development initiative in 2005 to improve the economic vitality of the Great Lakes region. This site provides updates on progress.
