Great Lakes Stewardship

The GLFT’s Great Lakes Stewardship grant category focuses on increasing awareness and understanding of the ecology of the Great Lakes so that citizens can be advocates for strategies that support long-term sustainability of the Great Lakes fishery and become stewards of the Great Lakes. This includes projects that:

  • Build understanding at the ecosystem or watershed level, and promote taking related action, on Great Lakes issues including:
    • Protecting biological diversity
    • Sustaining commercial and recreational fisheries
    • Controlling non-native nuisance species
    • Reducing pollution
  • Promote environmental stewardship through direct experiences with natural resources
  • Promote awareness of, and access to, existing Great Lakes stewardship education programs and resources
