Project Details

Researchers from Michigan State University, University of Michigan, and Wayne State University, together with the Muskegon River Watershed Assembly and volunteers from the Michigan Lake and Stream Association and other local stakeholders, collaborated to conduct an ecological survey of the Muskegon River watershed. The primary goal was to develop and apply new methods for assessing the ecological integrity of aquatic ecosystems to improve our understanding of relationships between human activities and valued ecological attributes; develop new technologies to improve ecological assessments; and to engage public and government stakeholders in the research and communicate
results to them. This project was part of the Great Lakes Fishery Trust's Muskegon River Initiative and the Muskegon River Watershed Research Partnership.
