About Lake Erie Binational Forum

The Lake Erie Binational Forum is public forum administered by The Ohio Environmental Council (OEC) to promote and achieve effective Lake Erie basin-wide implementation of Lakewide Management Plan (LaMP) goals. With well trained new and existing members, the Forum successfully engages civic and community leaders; stakeholder groups; and local and regional media outlets about major stressors to Lake Erie that threaten the economic viability of the region and the health of the citizens. This website is built as a tool to more effectively involve the various communities and the general public. This website houses current information, research and analysis regarding a variety of stressors to the Lake Erie ecosystem. It also contains a variety of concise video tutorials by some of the region’s most highly regarded experts. The site also seeks feedback from interactions with the members of the target groups, including whether or not they have implemented conservation practices.
