What it’s like to live on an island in the Great Lakes

Tourism is seasonal on South Bass Island.

There are about 32,000 islands in the Great Lakes. About 30 of them have year-round residents – people who stick it out through the long winter.

Now, Great Lakes islanders are banding together.

They’re creating a coalition to work together to solve the challenges they share in common. The coalition was featured in Michigan Radio's Environment Report today.

Reporter Rebecca Williams joined Stateside to explain the challenges of island life, and the new coalition's goals.

Listen to Stateside’s conversation with Rebecca Williams above. For more on this story, read today’s Environment Report here
