February Update

Register for Lakebed 2030 Webinar - Feb. 25

Today, most of the Great Lakes lakefloor remains unmapped at high resolution. And this leaves big gaps in our understanding that affect everything from ecosystem research to property management.

Lakebed 2030 is the regional initiative to map the lakes.

Join in on the webinar on Feb. 25 to learn about the exciting effort and hear updates from members of the Great Lakes Bottom Mapping Working Group.
