Pilot Projects

In 2016, a team of researchers from University of Michigan and Michigan Technological University worked with LIAA, a non-profit community planning organization, under a grant from MDEQ (Office of the Great Lakes) to develop strategies to better assess the resiliency of Great Lakes coastal wetlands and their relationships to adjacent communities. Ultimately, the goal of this project was to enhance local capacity to protect and enhance coastal wetlands, with a special emphasis on responding to changing water levels and dynamic ecosystems.  Field studies were completed in two locations in Michigan, Luna Pier in the southeastern corner of the state with shoreline along Lake Erie and the Les Cheneaux Islands of Lake Huron.
