Signs of Progress

All U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service field sites that are receiving Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding will be marked by a sign similar to the one pictured below. Marking our field sites is part of our interagency agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This funding requirement is designed to increase transparency with regard to the use of GLRI funding and increase public awareness.
