In the News

USS to idle Minntac plant in June
Minneapolis Star Tribune (3/31)

Meet one of Canada’s last Great Lakes fishermen
Munchies (3/30)

Duluth News Tribune (3/30)
On Lake Superior, satellite photos show the eastern half of the lake is still holding ice. But that ice appears to be cracking and pulling away from shore, and Great Lakes freighters haven't reported difficulty traversing the lake as they did last spring.

Satellite images show amazing Great Lakes ice melt over the last month
WXYZ Detroit (3/30)
In just four weeks, the ice coverage on the Great Lakes has decreased almost in half.

Mayors from Middle East, Great Lakes to join forces at historic "Water After Borders" summit
InvestorIdeas.com (3/30)
The Great Lakes are a site of abundance spanning peaceful borders between the U.S. and Canada; the Jordan River marks a demilitarized border between Israel and Jordan, and a border contested by Palestine and Israel. Now, mayors from both regions will join forces for the first time to strategize on water issues.

Canadian Icebreaker on the way to Lake Erie
