These Lakes are Your Lakes

These are your lakes
These lakes are my lakes
From the long point marshes
to the Nipigon highlands
from the Michigan sand dunes
to the Thousand Islands
These lakes were made
for you and me.

And there beside me
in those clear mirrors
Came summer breezes and autumn colors
And winter snow storms
and springtime flowers
They said: These lakes were made
for you and me.

The Sun was shining
white clouds were drifting
And eagles soaring and rivers throbbing
And fish romancing
the whole Earth dancing
These lakes were made
for you and me.

These lakes are your lakes.
These lakes are my lakes.
From the long point marshes
to the Nipigon Highlands
From the Michigan sand dunes
to the Thousand Islands
These lakes were made
for you and me...yes:
These lakes were made for you and me.

Preface

No Directory can provide a complete listing of all available Great Lakes materials. However, we trust that this listing is helpful in identifying commonly used materials, and sources of additional programs on the Great Lakes. Materials in this Directory pertain to the Great Lakes Basin Ecosystem. In addition, we have included selected materials from outside the basin which we feel are particularly relevant.

Five surveys have been sent over the past ten years to more than 5,000 educators and producers of educational materials. As a result of several hundred telephone conversations, to identify materials for use in teaching others about the Great Lakes ecosystem, the Directory has expanded considerably since its first edition in 1987.

This Fifth Edition of the Directory of Great Lakes Education Material is available in hard copy, or on 3-1/2" IBM compatible diskette upon request. Prices listed for each reference are for guidance only. Contact with the source will confirm recent costs.


Acknowledgements

A Directory such as this is not possible without the assistance of numerous individuals and organizations. Thanks to all who took the time and courtesy to respond to the written, telephone and fax surveys. To try to name all of these individuals is virtually impossible. Special recognition must also be given to Beverley Croft-Miller, for her patience, guidance, support and editing.
