2015 State of the Strait Conference
Coordinating Conservation in the St. Clair-Detroit River System
The theme for the 2015 conference was “Coordinating Conservation in the St. Clair-Detroit River System”. There is a need to prioritize restoration, monitor effectiveness, and adaptively manage coastal systems throughout the Great Lakes. The same is true in the St. Clair-Detroit River System, where diverse partnerships are contributing to the conservation, protection and enhancement of the region through research, planning, and prioritization frameworks as well as on-the ground action that, if applied in a coordinated manner, could more effectively address regional needs and develop conservation solutions that equally enhance socioeconomic values. The 2015 State of the Strait explored current efforts and new ways to maximize the effectiveness of conservation efforts being conducted by multiple agencies and organizations, and how we can amplify effectiveness through coordination and by incorporating socioeconomic factors into regional conservation planning.
The conference was held on December 9, 2015 at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
