The inaugural Michigan Inland Lakes Convention brought together lake enthusiasts, lake professionals, researchers, elected officials, and others interested in protecting Michigan’s water resources. It included three days of educational presentations and discussion, in-depth workshops, tours, exhibits and much more focused on Michigan’s 11,000 inland lakes. 

Convention sessions covered a wide variety of topics, including aquatic invasive species management and control, natural shoreline management, Cooperative Lakes Monitoring Program training, the latest in lake research, riparian rights and water law, and much more!  

The 2014 Michigan Inland Lakes Convention was brought to you by the Michigan Inland Lakes Partnership, launched in 2008 to promote collaboration to advance stewardship of Michigan’s inland lakes.
