Mapping a restoration project near you

The Great Lakes Commission has a new sweet interactive map that shows where your taxpayer money is going to protect and restore the Great Lakes.

Showcasing nearly 1,000 restoration projects being implemented under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI). this new map includes overlays of congressional districts, state and county boundaries and can be sorted by title, lead agency, state and other parameters.

This is a must see and underscores how important GLRI projects are to the health of our fishery, wildlife and the economies that rely upon the Great Lakes.

Don’t forget that every $1 investment in Great Lakes restoration creates $2 of economic benefit, according to a Brookings Institution report.
