This compendium brings 120 selected essays together in one book to share thoughtful analysis on issues affecting Wisconsin’s Great Lakes shorelines and communities.​​

State coastal programs have managed this vital resource since passage of the Coastal Zone Management Act in 1972, coordinating and balancing the needs of diverse stakeholders.
