The State of the Strait is a Canada-U.S. one-day conference held every two years that brings together government managers, researchers, students, environmental and conservation organizations, and concerned citizens to assess ecosystem status and provide advice to improve research, monitoring, and management. Conference location alternates between the United States and Canada. Past themes include: Monitoring for Sound Management, Status and Trends of Key Indicators for the Detroit River and Western Lake Erie, Ecological Benefits of Habitat Modification and Use of Remote Sensing and GIS to Better Manage the Huron-Erie Corridor.
