Do you love fishing, boating or swimming in the Erie region? Is Lake Erie the source of your drinking water? Do you benefit economically from coastal resources or activities?
Can anyone disagree that it will take citizen involvement and coordinated management to preserve, protect, develop, enhance and restore these unlimited resources to sustain current and future generations? Thirty-four states, including Pennsylvania, have approved coastal resource management programs (CRMPs) to address a wide range of issues, including coastal development, water quality, public access, habitat protection, energy facility siting, ocean governance and planning, coastal hazards and climate change. Find out more about the PA CRMP and how to land grants for your project to benefit the Lake Erie Coastal Zone.
