CIGLR Spotlight: Outreach Program

CIGLR Spotlight: Outreach Program

CIGLR’s outreach mission is to connect with communities and work with them to solve the complex problems facing the Great Lakes. This year, CIGLR made connections with several communities in the Great Lakes region and reconnected with many familiar faces. CIGLR’s Outreach Specialist, Michele Wensman, says “the more people we can reach and the more we share our common bond about the Great Lakes, whether it be through research or recreation, the greater our success is together throughout the region. We look forward to connecting with even more Great Lakes communities in the future and hope to continue inspiring and encouraging a culture of Great Lakes stewardship.”
