Project Title & Description
Simple Avian Management Techniques for Cleaner Beaches
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-10. The Alliance for the Great Lakes will implement simple best management practices to reduce bird populations by reducing food sources at three to five beaches in three Areas of Concern (Milwaukee Estuary, Detroit River, and the Cuyahoga River). The Alliance will monitor Adopt a Beach Program data to evaluate project effectiveness. This project is expected to reduce bacteriological contamination and improve water quality at the targeted beaches.
