Habitat 2001: A Workshop on the Future of Habitat Restoration and Protection on the Upper Great Lakes


HABITAT 2001, a workshop on the future of habitat restoration and protection in the Upper Great Lakes, was held in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario from February 25-27, 1997. In attendance were over 50 professionals from around Lakes Huron, Michigan and Superior who have an interest in aquatic and terrestrial habitat issues. The workshop, which consisted of presentations, panel discussions and breakout sessions, was designed to inform participants of advances in habitat science and technology in the Upper Great Lakes, to present lessons from ongoing habitat projects and initiatives, and to provide a forum for discussing the next steps in setting environmental objectives and indicators for each of the three lakes.
