2019 Tribal Great Lakes Restoration (PDF, 40 pp.)

Report cover: 2019 Tribal Great Lakes Restoration: Culturally Inspired Restoration

The publication's theme "Culturally Inspired Restoration" acknowledges the unique contributions tribes provide to protect and restore the Great Lakes ecosystem, often in close collaboration with state, federal, and other partners.

As the original caretakers of the Great Lakes, tribes provide extensive knowledge, values, and expertise to lead and address some of the most pressing issues facing the Great Lakes from declining moose populations on the Grand Portage Reservation in northern Minnesota to cleaning up the St. Lawrence River Area of Concern and revitalizing extirpated Atlantic salmon on Saint Regis Mohawk territories in northeast New York.
