Lake Superior holds 10 percent of the world’s fresh water. It is an undeniably huge resource. The lake means different things to different people, whether it's a source of inspiration or income, or a favorite place to recreate or fish. In 2012 WTIP is bringing Lake Superior into focus with The Lake Superior Project, a series of 26 stories airing every other week throughout the year. We’ll take a closer look at the culture and history of the Lake Superior region and investigate issues like the impacts of climate change, invasive species, development, and industry as well as explore how people are coming together to protect and preserve the lake for generations to come. This project is funded in part by the Coastal Zone Management Act, by NOAA’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management in cooperation with Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, and by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
