The USDA Forest Service has recently awarded over $5.5 million in grants to support 47 Great Lakes restoration projects in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio and Wisconsin. The projects are funded through the GLRI under an agreement with EPA. As a result of this collaborative effort of the Forest Service and EPA, over 675,000 trees have been planted on nonfederal lands since 2010, preventing over 38 million gallons of stormwater runoff per year.
