The Grand Traverse Bay is the focal point of the northwest region of Michigan's lower peninsula, and area residents are vividly aware of its beauty and delicacy. Traverse City, a town of about 20,000 people, historically has pooled its human resources to protect its natural ones. As the International Joint Commission’s (IJC) 1991 Biennial Meeting approaches (see page 11 for registration and program information), local energies have intensified to focus on Grand Traverse Bay protection efforts, and conference participants will be impressed by the splendor of the Grand Traverse Bay and the dedication of local people to protect the bay’s water quality.
