Great Lakes Clean Communities Network
The GLIN April Site of the Month is the Great Lakes Clean Communities Network, a multi-partner effort led by the Institute of Water Research (IWR) at Michigan State University (MSU) to create a community of environmental practitioners throughout the Great Lakes. The GLCCN is a web-based community currently being developed to link and empower cities and organizations around the Great Lakes to more effectively implement programs to improve the ecological health in their watersheds, community, and the Great Lakes Basin.
The primary goal of this effort is to establish a long-term sustainable network of practitioners and leaders who will share their experiences, successes, tools, and websites with each other. Through the GLCCN, individuals can become better equipped to address environmental problems with tools, technology, and shared ideas.
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.
