Greening of the Great Lakes

GLIN Site of the Month Michigan State University and News/Talk 760 WJR have launched a web site called "Greening of the Great Lakes." The goal of the web site is to provide information and insight into the organizations committed to making the Great Lakes region a leader in environmental practices.

With video, podcasts, pictures, graphics and numerous links to other relative sites and news stories, Greening of the Great Lakes is designed to be an entertaining online resource for anyone interested in learning about the Great Lakes region, related environmental issues and ways that they can protect the environment.

Underwater Cultural Resources

Local Investment in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence

A new report concludes that local governments in the U.S. and Canada invest an estimated $15 billion annually to protect and restore the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, but cannot keep pace with the one-two punch of escalating threats to the resource and ongoing cuts in federal restoration programs.

International Upper Great Lakes Study

International Upper Great Lakes Study The International Joint Commission appointed the International Upper Great Lakes Study Board in February 2007 to examine whether the regulation of Lake Superior outflows can be improved to address the evolving needs of the upper Great Lakes. The study area includes lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie, and their interconnecting channels.
