The State of the Strait is an international one-day conference that brings together government managers, researchers, students, environmental and conservation organizations, and concerned citizens to assess ecosystem status and provide advice to improve research, monitoring, and management from Lake St. Clair to the western basin of Lake Erie. The theme for the 2015 conference is “Coordinating Conservation in the St. Clair-Detroit River System”.

There is a need to prioritize restoration, monitor effectiveness, and adaptively manage coastal systems throughout the Great Lakes. The same is true in the St. Clair-Detroit River System, where diverse partnerships are contributing to the conservation, protection and enhancement of the region through research, planning, and prioritization frameworks as well as on-the ground action that, if applied in a coordinated manner, could more effectively address regional needs and develop conservation solutions that equally enhance socioeconomic values. The 2015 State of the Strait will explore current efforts and new ways to maximize the effectiveness of conservation efforts being conducted by multiple agencies and organizations, and how we can amplify effectiveness through coordination and by incorporating socioeconomic factors into regional conservation planning.
