Great Lakes Observing System

A new web site is online for the developing Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS), a regional node of the Integrated Ocean Observing System initiative. GLOS will provide critical real-time and historical data on lake conditions for multiple users.

Daily News Sponsor of the Month:

Great Lakes Radio Consortium


GLRC produces environmentally focused news featured on more than 100 public radio stations around the Great Lakes region and several national radio programs. The GLRC is currently running an extensive series titled "Ten Threats to the Great Lakes." Three feature-length stories each week will explore major threats to the health of the lakes ranging from alien invasive species to water withdrawals.

Healthy Waters, Healthy Communities

The symposium, Nov. 16-18 in Alliston, Ontario, was started to provide a forum for practitioners, students, academics, politicians and non-government organizations to discuss salient challenges and opportunities in the conservation movement in Ontario and to learn new tools, techniques and strategies for natural resources management.

Fall Colors for 2005

This site contains links to fall color information including National Forest fall foliage hotspots, USDA-Forest Service regional fall foliage sites, state websites, and information on why leaves change color in the fall.

Nab the Aquatic Invader

Major arrests need to be made in the fight against invading aquatic plants and animals. "Nab the Aquatic Invaders! Be a Sea Grant Super Sleuth" is looking for kids in grades 4-10 who want to help book these "bad guys" in an educational and interactive detective game.

Our Water. Our Future. Ours to Protect.

The Southeast Michigan Partners for Clean Water was formed to engage the public in activities to protect our water resources through continued awareness, knowledge, and action. The partnership includes representatives from SEMCOG, various counties, communities, watershed councils, and water-quality professionals in southeast Michigan.
