Welcome to Great Lakes Connection

IJC staff

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Great Lakes Connection. The International Joint Commission’s new online newsletter is dedicated to bringing you the latest science on the health of the Great Lakes ecosystem in a clear, accurate and timely voice.

We invite you, our readers, to share your stories on the value the lakes have in your lives. By connecting knowledge of issues facing the lakes and their inherent value, we hope citizens throughout the region can consider how they can take personal and collective action to restore and protect our treasured Great Lakes.

Please subscribe to this newsletter by clicking on the subscription button, and share it widely with colleagues, family and friends.  If you have questions or suggestions for articles, please contact Executive Editor Jeff Kart at

For the Great Lakes,
