The conference organizers felt that although many habitat rehabilitation and conservation projects had been undertaken in the Detroit River watershed, the public was unaware of them or the value and benefits of such projects. A total of nine success stories were presented at the conference. It should be noted that other smaller scale projects of habitat rehabilitation and conservation have also been undertaken throughout the Detroit River watershed. These smaller scale projects are also important and collectively can have a substantial impact. Presented below are brief summaries of the nine success stories presented at the conference.
