Here on the blog we cover a lot of the work related to the southern Lake Michigan area and other important waterways throughout Illinois and Indiana. But there is terrific and important work being done by each of the 33 Sea Grant programs around the U.S., each of them protecting and preserving America’s coastlines and water resources. 

If you are interested in learning more about what each of the respective Sea Grant programs has accomplished towards that goal, the latest Sea Grant report, The State of Sea Grant 2012: Impacts,Challenges, Opportunities is available online for review. 

Submitted to Congress every two years, the report features detailed information about each program’s education, research, and outreach achievements, as well as short- and long-term goals for future action. 

Read the report at the link above, and feel free to visit each Sea Grant’s webpages for more in-depth information about the work they do protecting America’s waterways.
