At the end of each month on Current State, we check in with Great Lakes commentator and journalist Gary Wilson for updates on environmental stories from around the Basin.

For our March edition of Great Lakes Month in Review, Wilson discusses tar sand crude oil, Great Lakes Day in Washington D.C. earlier this month, and selling Great Lakes water to drought-stricken areas. 

This segment is supported by Michigan State University's Knight Center for Environmental Journalism. More news about the Great Lakes environment can be found at and on Current State every Tuesday as part of our partnership.
