  • Description:
    It is with great pride that I share with you the impacts Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant (IISG) has had in our region in 2016. Our work is helping communities conserve water supplies, create sustainable plans, and grow economically and ecologically resilient. We have helped mitigate invasive species, pharmaceuticals, and algae-feeding nutrients in our local waters, the Great Lakes, and the Gulf of Mexico. And we are fostering a life-long sense of place as well as knowledge about coastal habitats in elementary and middle school students. This is a chance for me to thank our partners—we work together to achieve common goals. IISG is administratively housed in and shares positions with University of Illinois Extension, Purdue University Extension, and several Purdue University academic departments. We share positions with University of Illinois Prairie Research Institute, Midwest Regional Climate Center, and Purdue University Northwest. The U.S. EPA Great Lakes National Program Office provides support, with the assistance of the U.S. Geological Survey, for specialists, educators, and communicators who help to bring EPA science to the public. The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, Chicago Botanic Garden, McHenry County Extension, and Loyola University Chicago provide office space and administrative support for our specialists as well. We also share personnel and coordinate programming with the USGS-sponsored Illinois Water Resources Center. This partnership has well served both organizations over the last 20 years and is now a national model for efficient use of federal resources. Our partners, and the federal and state funding they help us leverage, support our specialists, educators, and communicators as they collaborate with researchers to connect communities and stakeholders with the latest science.
