UM: Great Lakes

WWJ Newsradio reports that the Michigan Sea Grant program has been awarded over $1.5 million in federal funding. The program is a collaboration between UM and Michigan State University, based at UM’s School of Natural Resources and Environment. The grant will fund two major Great Lakes restoration projects, helping to clean up marinas and restore the habitats of native fish. Jim Diana, director of the Michigan Sea Grant, says: “For years, we’ve used the Great Lakes as dumping grounds…We now have some significant funding which enables us to tackle these issues in a comprehensive, coordinated way.” [Source]
