Bird Studies Canada, in conjunction with several partners, developed an innovative approach to wetlands monitoring activities within Areas of Concern (AOC) in the Great Lakes. This project established a formal network of trained volunteers in each AOC to address wetland function.  In addition, the project developed a plan for monitoring and assessment needs identified as AOCs beneficial use impairments.  Bird Studies Canada produced monitoring protocols that were designed to address the information needs associated with specific impairments.
