This Initiative addresses:
Wetlands and Coastal Habitats
GLSC provides critical scientific information to natural resource managers through wetland restoration and management studies, and long-term effects of lake level changes (IJC partnership).
Metzger Marsh before and after restoration (western Lake Erie)
Wetland studies and development of new water level regulation plans for Lake Ontario
(Maybe something here to re-iterate the importance and value of water quality monitoring and research to GLSC projects; value of partnerships between BRD and WRD and also inter-agency collaborations.)
