The GLIN December Site of the Month is Freshwater Future. Freshwater Future works to ensure the healthy future of our waters in the Great Lakes region. Freshwater Future is the only watershed-wide organization dedicated solely to supporting the needs of community-based groups working to protect and restore Great Lakes land and water resources. As such, Freshwater Future is uniquely able to help protect and restore the Great Lakes. The've helped thousands of community-based groups and individuals for over fifteen years.
Freshwater Future has provided over $1.5 million in grants, locally targeted resource toolkits, trainings, as well as planning and strategy consulting assistance. The organization also encourages engagement and participation in community decision-making to protect and restore local rivers, lakes and wetlands. Freshwater Future helps people make an on-the-ground difference.
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from
wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
