Our Great Lakes - Be Part of It

The historic Cleveland Harbor Coast Guard Station on Lake Erie

The people of Northeast Ohio are
fortunate to have one of the world's greatest bodies of freshwater at
our doorstep. Cleveland, being the largest metropolis on Lake Erie,
needs to leverage this great asset and realize its potential to make
Northeast Ohio a world contender. The citizens, organizations, and
public officials have begun the collaboration needed to make it
happen. The only way we can keep the momentum going to restore our
Great Lakes is to get involved and “be part of it.”
