Swim Guide

Swim Guide was launched in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence watershed more than a decade ago to help address water quality concerns and answer your question: Is it safe to swim here? Swim Guide is now international yet continues to help people around the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence watershed connect to their local water and understand health risks associated with recreating in the water.

Great Lakes Untamed

Accomplished documentarians Merit Motion Pictures and Oak Island Films have set their eyes on bringing the Great Lakes watershed to the world through the landmark documentary series Great Lakes Untamed. These awe-inspiring films enrich the Biinaagami initiative and remind us of what we have to lose if we fail to protect the waters of the Great Lakes.
