The ecological health of Lake Superior depends a great deal on the health of its tributary streams.
The watercourses that empty into Lake Superior provide important habitat for animal and plant populations as well as a natural highway for movement of wildlife. At the same time, these streams dump sediments and chemical pollutants into Lake Superior. Because streams are so important to Lake Superior and our region, EcoSuperior has developed two programs to protect and restore stream ecosystems.
- Protect Our Streams - provides information on proper management of streams.
- Study Our Streams - is a monitoring program to assess stream health.
