Restoring the Marsh: Phragmites Removal and Monitoring An Introduction to Michigan Watersheds for Teachers, Students and Residents
Great Lakes marshes are valuable wetland habitats, full of nutrients that help support diverse plant and animal life. They also provide ecological services such as water filtration and flood protection along the coast. However, many marsh habitats are threatened by pollution, development and non-native aquatic invasive species, like Phragmites.

Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie Great Lakes watershed poster
This 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.

No matter where you are located, you are in a watershed. A watershed can be as small as a few acres draining into a farm pond or as large as several thousand square miles for a major lake, such as one of our Great Lakes.

On this new map, created by the Nature Conservancy and produced by the Fred A. & Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation, the watersheds of our Great Lakes are depicted in vibrant color. Displaying both the individual and collective watersheds that make up the Great Lakes basins, this map helps to remind us that all of the water – clean and polluted – that flows into one of these watersheds will eventually end up in one of our Great Lakes. The map's simplified style and eye-catching color makes it a great addition to any classroom or home. 24" x 40"
