Great Lakes Region

The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative story map highlights a decade of NOAA and partners’ work in the Great Lakes. Since 2010, NOAA has worked through the GLRI to restore habitat across the Great Lakes region. Our efforts have helped strengthen valuable Great Lakes fisheries and restore coastal wetlands that improve water quality, and provide recreational opportunities for the public’s use and enjoyment. NOAA projects have improved fish passage, cleaned up contaminated debris, restored coastal wetlands, and removed invasive species. Take a virtual tour of some of our major restoration projects from across the region, from the Buffalo River in New York to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
