A series of short features looking at the broad range of issues facing one of the world's largest resources: Lake Superior.

Lake Superior holds 10 percent of the world’s fresh water. It is an undeniably huge resource. The lake means different things to different people, whether it's a source of inspiration or income, or a favorite place to recreate or fish. WTIP North Shore Community Radio brings Lake Superior into focus with The Lake Superior Project, a series of 12 stories airing monthly throughout the year. We’ll take a closer look at the culture and history of the Lake Superior region and investigate issues like the impacts of climate change, invasive species, development, and industry as well as explore how people are coming together to protect and preserve the lake for generations to come. This project is funded in part by the Coastal Zone Management Act, by NOAA’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, in cooperation with Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.
