Lake Superior is a vast fresh water resource that has not yet experienced the same levels of development, urbanization and pollution as the other Great Lakes. However, along Minnesota's North Shore, the lake and its many tributaries still face challenges such as invasive species, changing forests and complex weather patterns. WTIP created this project to cover not just the issues facing the Lake Superior North Shore watershed, but to provide awareness for how the watershed can be preserved rather than restored.
Funding for this project comes in part by the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, as amended, administered by the Office for Coastal Management, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration under Award NA15NOS4190126 provided to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.
The statements, findings, conclusions, and recommendations are those of the reporter and people interviewed for the Clean & Sustainable Series, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management, U.S. Department of Commerce or Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
