  #

The 2013 Great Lakes Seaway Trail Travel Magazine is out and publishers say packed with ideas for exploring the 518-mile National Scenic Byway that hugs the freshwater shoreline of New York and Pennsylvania.

Should Lake Superior wolves be saved?

  #

Wildlife quandary: Should Lake Superior wolves be saved?On an island in Lake Superior, biologists are wondering whether to save some very special wolves from extinction by inbreeding, or let nature take its course.

Behind this is the bigger question: What's really natural, anyway?

The wolves are on Isle Royale, a huge island off Thunder Bay, Ont. Because of a twist in the international boundary, it's in U.S. waters, though closer to Canada's mainland.

Canadian animals have colonized it twice. In the early 1900s, moose swam over from the mainland and thrived.  more...

This summer, travel on La Route bleue

  #
Short Hops: This summer, travel on La Route bleueIt’s a fact of life in Quebec that you can’t venture out very far from home without having to cross a bridge or take a car ferry.

As Montrealers, we know about the bridges; there are 28 bridges and tunnels leading out from the island of Montreal. But downstream from Montreal, as the St. Lawrence River gets progressively wider, car ferries are the critical transport links for area residents. For tourists, they offer an opportunity for inexpensive and interesting boat travel. more...

Legislators seek offshore wind power restrictions

  #

The legislation also would prevent leasing similar lands for an electric transmission line — a critical component for offshore wind projects in the Great Lakes.  more...
