      A multi agency project funded by US EPA's STAR Program


Minnesota Sea Grant will be working with the GLEI researchers to spread the word about the GLEI project, results, and end products to Great Lakes managers and other interested groups. Minnesota Sea Grant will help with the communication of project results to users by:

1. distributing the results via workshops, fact sheets, the mass media, and its web site;

2. assisting users in selection of the most appropriate indicators;

3. utilizing the Great Lakes Information Network (GLIN). GLIN consists of 7 programs in 8 states with over 70 outreach personnel; it assists with coordination of basin-wide activities;

4. providing outreach communicators in each Sea Grant program to send information to their local media and research community; and

5. working with local stakeholders (managers, businesses, local government, and non-governmental organizations) in all Great Lakes coastal areas.
