Translating Science Into Action in the Great Lakes
May 4, 2016, 7:00 pm–8:30 pm
The White House Council on Environmental Quality last year identified seven important landscapes for conservation and restoration, naming among others the Hawaiian Islands, Washington’s Puget Sound, the Florida Everglades and a section of the Great Lakes — a 6.3 million-acre stretch of coastal wetlands from Saginaw Bay on southern Lake Huron to western Lake Erie.
Research Scientist Matt Cooper at the Northland College Burke Center for Freshwater Innovation has been researching this region of Lake Huron and Lake Erie and will present his results, “Translating Science into Action in the Great Lakes,” Wednesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at the Northland College Alvord Theatre.
“The hope is that the work on Lake Erie and Lake Huron will act as a prototype for estuary systems in all the Great Lakes,” Cooper said.
