The Great Lakes Clean Marina Network evolved from the Green Marina Education and Outreach Project (2010-2013), a collaborative effort of Great Lakes states Clean Marina programs. The project served to increase communications and resource sharing across Clean Marina programs in the Great Lakes region. This collaborative effort is now sustained by the Great Lakes Clean Marina Network.

The Network provides a forum for Great Lakes marina and boatyard stakeholders — including public, private, media, academic and industry representatives — to share information on the Great Lakes from a marina and boatyard perspective. The Network has traditionally met quarterly by conference call to share ideas and participate in learning opportunities.
