Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring
The Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program is a bi-national, long-term
monitoring program that coordinates the skills and dedication of
hundreds of volunteer Citizen Scientists throughout the Great Lakes
basin of Ontario and the United States.
Bird Studies Canada launched the program throughout the Great Lakes
basin in 1995 with financial support from Environment Canada, the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency, and the Great Lakes Protection Fund.
The program is designed to collect information about the presence and
abundance of bird and amphibian species in Great Lakes coastal and
inland marshes, to contribute to our understanding of these species and
their habitat needs.
MMP volunteers have a unique and rewarding opportunity to support the
study and conservation of some of North America's most important - and
threatened - ecosystems.
