A Healthy Marsh (FREE) Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie (FREE) Take a Kid Fishing! MID-MICHIGAN: Guide to public lakes and rivers
With the constantly shifting water levels and conditions, a wide variety of birds, plants and animals can take advantage of the habitat. Because of this diversity and the presence of rich soils, wetlands provide shelter and homes to not just larger mammals and birds, but also insects, invertebrates, bacteria, algae and decaying plants. Combined, these smaller organisms create a solid foundation for a rich food chain. Inside this informational brochure is a 11"x17" poster of the Great Lakes Coastal Marshes.

Available as a printed copy (10, 20, 30 or 40 quantity) or as a PDF (download here).
This FREE poster unpacks the history and science behind Lake Erie's now-annual algal bloom. Learn why Lake Erie experiences so many harmful algal blooms and how scientists are using innovative tools to understand and hopefully prevent these blooms in the future. Complete with a timeline of milestones in the fight against blooms in Lake Erie, this 39" x 27" poster is a useful guide for offices or high school and college classrooms. Use this guide to get started on your next fishing adventure in the Mid-Michigan area. The map shows fishing access sites on local lakes and streams, and the fish illustrations on the reverse side of the map help identify many of the common fish species found in these bodies of water. Other information includes the do's and don'ts of living or recreating near water, and tips for preparing and eating the fish you catch.
