The Great Lakes are one of Michigan’s greatest resources, providing recreational opportunities, a premier fisheries resource, water for agriculture, manufacturing, and other industries and multiple other uses. They are also subject to major problems such as invasive species, climate change, and harmful algal blooms.  This conference will address some of these key topic areas along with highlighting the evolution of coastal dunes, variability in Great Lakes ice cover, autonomous vehicles for underwater monitoring, and using poop-sniffing dogs for beach monitoring.  The cost to attend the conference is $10 in advance or $12 at the door.

The conference, part of Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) Week at Michigan State University (MSU) is co-sponsored by MSU’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife and Institute of Water Research; Michigan Sea Grant Extension, and the Office of the Great Lakes, Michigan Department of  Natural Resources with support from the USGS Water Resources Research Program.
