Great Lakes Coastal Wetland Monitoring

    Grant Details

    Description

    This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. This project will establish a basin-wide coastal wetland monitoring program. Fish, invertebrate, bird, amphibian, and plant communities, along with chemical and physical variables, will be assessed in the majority of coastal wetland areas throughout the Great Lakes basin. These efforts will produce information on the status and trends of Great Lakes coastal wetlands, and enable managers to identify the highest quality, most degraded and most threatened coastal wetlands in both the United States and Canada. This information will be used by decision-makers to prioritize their efforts and expenditures to protect or restore these critical habitats.
