This is the first of five annual workshops on the general theme of agro-environmental policy issues in the Great Lakes region. The series is sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) with a program grant, Michigan State University, The Ohio State University, the Elton R. Smith Program in Food and Agricultural Policy at Michigan State, and the C. William Swank Program in Rural-Urban Policy at Ohio State. Planning committee members for this first workshop, listed on page 2, bring expertise from state natural resource agencies in Michigan and Ohio, federal resource agencies, academic research and education.
