Health of the Great Lakes
The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funds regional efforts to protect and preserve both the environmental and economic health of the Great Lakes. Threats to continued funding have sparked major concern for the health of the Great Lakes, the largest freshwater resource in the world. Toxic and nutrient pollution, invasive species and habitat degradation threaten our water quality, fishing industry, and recreation along the shoreline. Ongoing research tells us much about the future of the Great Lakes and their connection to human and economic health. The March 28 forum will feature research related to major concerns for the Great Lakes and look at recommendations for continued restoration efforts.
