The GLRI has worked in partnership with conservation efforts including groups like Ducks Unlimited. It also funds researchers at Central Michigan University who have done critical work assessing the health of 10,000 miles of wetlands that support the Great Lakes ecosystem. The university has been doing research funded by GLRI since 2010.
Congressman Moolenaar made the following statement on the passage of yesterday's legislation:
"Protection for the Great Lakes is a top priority for Michigan residents and as our state's only member of the House Appropriations Committee I successfully worked to make sure it was included in today's legislation. The GLRI benefits our state and does vital work to help ensure Michigan families will be able to enjoy the Great Lakes this summer and for years to come."
