New York's Great Lakes
About This Site

NY's Great Lakes: About This Site

New York’s Great Lakes region consists of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, their tributaries and the St. Lawrence and Niagara Rivers. New York’s Great Lakes support local and regional economies, provide recreation and hold high ecological importance. 

The New York’s Great Lakes clearinghouse will serve as a clearinghouse of information about the Great Lakes region of New York State and act as a portal through which users can access specific resources related to grant funding, research projects, and the priorities of New York’s Great Lakes Action Agenda. Information is divided into categories on the website, which can be found in the sub-navigation box on the left-handside of the site. Each page is also divided into sections for a more user-friendly approach. This site has a “Contact Us” feature that allows users to submit comments and questions to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation’s Great Lakes Watershed Coordinators, and to subscribe to the NY Great Lakes Basin listserv for news, funding opportunity notices, and events.

This Web site is designed for audiences of all backgrounds, from environmental researchers and agency personnel to teachers and students.

The New York’s Great Lakes clearinghouse was developed by New York Sea Grant for the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation with funding from the Environmental Protection Fund, in support of the Ocean and Great Lakes Ecosystem Conservation Act of 2006.
