Weber Stream Restoration Initiative Receives 2010 Environmental Stewardship Award

The Weber Stream Restoration Initiative received the 2010 Environmental Stewardship Award from the Lake Superior Binational Forum on July 9. Cameron Davis, senior advisor on the Great Lakes to the U.S. EPA presented the award to Ron Weber whose private donation started the Initiative. The award recognizes the comprehensive stream protection and restoration activities of this partnership in the western arm of Lake Superior.

The Initiative was highly scored by the U.S. and Canada judging panel because it represents a partnership of scientists and resource managers from more than 25 different groups coordinated by UMD’s Natural Resources Research Institute. UMD’s Minnesota Sea Grant program and the University of Minnesota Extension Service are also collaborators. Focusing on the impaired Amity Creek and Lester River watersheds in Duluth, the project partners provide financial, scientific and labor support. Over the past five years, this collaboration has culminated in at least 13 stream-related projects along the North Shore of Lake Superior.
