Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center Extension Office

Through education, our UW-Extension office at the NGLVC, inspires and empowers people to create a healthy, sustainable Lake Superior Region.  Our office is recognized as the natural resource education center for the Lake Superior Basin with educational outreach via active educational partnerships encompassing both the U.S. and Canada. Our office is the heart of the education and research of the National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) which protects a number of significant Lake Superior estuarine environments and promotes coastal wetland stewardship through its programs utilizing a watershed approach.

Through our office, innovative new partnerships for education and research are resulting in a unified commitment to actively educating the public to ensure a sustainable Lake Superior basin.

Through the commitment of our office and our other partners in the Basin, the Lake Superior Region is a location where over-consumption and exploitation of natural and human resources is discouraged and not practiced. Because of this shared vision and commitment to practice these values, individuals from around the world are attracted to the Lake Superior Basin. The Lake Superior Basin Community is recognized as a world-wide leader in conservation and sustainability. This community learns from others while sharing these concepts, successes and failures with people around the United States and the world.
