State by State

The Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition works closely with several member organizations in states around the region to achieve our goal of restoring the Great Lakes. The work our member organizations do in the field is the backbone of our campaign – it amplifies our impact throughout the Great Lakes region. Below you’ll find stories from the field—restoration tours, visits to Washington, D.C. for meetings with public officials, or impacts from their work.
