Lake Conservation Webinar Series: MGLP Lake Conservation Grant
The Midwest Glacial Lakes Partnership (MGLP) has announced its annual request for fish habitat conservation project proposals, and this webinar will provide an opportunity for potential applicants to learn more about the grant and ask questions about the grant. The grant is intended to support conservation projects that work toward meeting the goals and objectives set forth in the MGLP Strategic Plan to benefit glacial lake fish habitats, which include addressing the chemical, physical, and biological components of the habitats that fishes found in glacial lakes use throughout their lives. Examples of potential projects include: projects that implement new techniques or methods; projects that serve as demonstration projects; watershed-level projects; water quality and erosion control measures; native vegetation or wetland rehabilitation; natural riparian or in-lake habitat restoration and protection; barrier removal for improved native fish passage; population or watershed assessments needed for project evaluation; prioritization and planning for future habitat projects; evaluating habitat conditions or lake water levels; projects addressing climate change adaptation or mitigation through fish habitat; projects training biologists and managers on inland lake fish habitat management tools and approaches, and community outreach and education on the importance of and how to better protect fish habitat. In addition to conducting independent outreach and/or education, successful applicants will be expected to work with the MGLP to coordinate media and public outreach to raise the profile of MGLP-funded projects.
