The Great Lakes Sea Grant Network honored Michigan Sea Grant Extension with three awards during the network’s semi-annual conference in Cleveland, Ohio.
Mary Bohling – who serves the urban Detroit area addressing economic development, habitat restoration, coastal tourism and greenway/water trail development – received a mid-career award.
Brandon Schroeder – who serves coastal counties along Lake Huron in fishery, coastal tourism, business development, and youth engagement in coastal community development and stewardship – received the Distinguished Service Award.
The network also awarded the Michigan Sea Grant program with the network’s Great Lakes Outreach Programming Award for its Sustainable Small Harbors project, which aims to assist coastal communities in their planning efforts.
