NOAA, Wisconsin officials designate 17,000-acre research reserve on Lake Superior
Date:10/26/2010

was established in 1980 on the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio.

The University of Wisconsin-Extension has been working closely with the University of Wisconsin-Superior on establishing and developing the Lake Superior Reserve. These two entities will work in partnership to provide long-term facilities, staffing, and programming for the reserve.

"The upper Great Lakes region has a number of features that will help in understanding the unique nature of freshwater estuaries," said Patrick Robinson, Lake Superior Reserve Acting Manager. "The research and monitoring programs here will help us understand the potential impacts of climate change on these important ecosystems and will provide critical, scientifically sound information to help communities and coastal managers deal with those impacts."

"The Wisconsin reserve will fill a significant gap in the Great Lakes biogeographic region and enhance our ability to conserve, study and manage these important freshwater estuary resources," said Laurie McGilvray, chief of NOAA's Estuarine Reserves Division. "It offers local communities an incredible resource to help them monitor their estuary, provide educational programs and advance the state of knowledge around this important natural resource."
