From 1997 through 2002, the Bureau of Endangered Resources conducted an assessment of existing coastal wetland data to determine ecologically significant coastal wetland sites within the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior basins. The project goals were to identify inventory gaps for guiding future inventory and planning efforts by the Bureau of Endangered Resources and others. The following reference materials stem from this multi-phase project.
