Raise your environmental I.Q.

A great local resource for information on environmental issues in the Great Lakes States is The Great Lakes Natural Resources Center which is a regional unit of the National Wildlife Federation. Their website includes factsheets on global warming's effects on Michigan climate, proposed electric generation changes and much more. There is also current news on conserving Michigan's water rights and the future impact of green technology on the auto industry. You can learn about programs the Center is initiating like legal action against sulfide mining operations that threaten the Lake Superior Basin. Check out this valuable resource to stay on top of the news about how to maintain the beauty and ecology of Michigan. Also, check out the Library's excellent collection of books on the Great Lakes.
