Small Streams and Large Lakes

Although the watersheds of the Great Lakes are very small relative to the size of the lakes, each lake is ringed by a few large rivers and hundreds to thousands of small streams.  These small streams directly deliver water, sediment, and nutrients into the lakes and provide habitat for plants and animals.  I will discuss what we know and don't know about these small streams, focusing on those surrounding Lake Superior, including historical and current stresses and restoration efforts.
