What is a Watershed?
Purpose of Watershed Protection
Lake Huron Watersheds
The Lake Huron Bi-National Partnership was formed in 2002 to meet commitments in the Canada-United States Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement for lake-wide management. The Partnership facilitates information sharing, sets priorities, and coordinates bi-national environmental protection and restoration activities.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Environment Canada, Michigan Departments of Natural Resources and Environmental Quality, and the Ontario Ministries of Environment and Natural Resources form the core of the Partnership.
The Partnership promotes a flexible membership which may include all levels of government, Métis, Tribes, First Nations, environmental non-government organizations and the public. These broader partnerships take on initiatives on an issue by issue basis that cannot be accomplished by individual agencies alone.
The Lake Huron Bi-National Partnership is an effort that focuses on key priorities and on the ground actions that help to improve and protect the overall quality of Lake Huron. The Partnership’s 2013 Annual Report provides information on the following topics:
We encourage you to learn more about Lake Huron and the collaborative approaches taken to understand its ecosystem, how we are protecting high quality areas and restoring areas that have been degraded. For more information please visit binational.net and Lake Huron-Georgian Bay Watershed.
