International Joint Commission Great Lakes Project has been involved in 150 watermarks.
The International Joint Commission prevents and resolves disputes between the United States of America and Canada under the 1909 Boundary Waters Treaty and pursues the common good of both countries as an independent and objective advisor to the two governments. The IJC is partnering with Lake Ontario Waterkeeper to gather and share a special Great Lakes Watermark collection. Your words, whether written, spoken or filmed, connect us with the personal, emotional and cultural ways that you use and value these precious bodies of water. The lakes’ beauty, immensity, a particularly beautiful beach or rock cove, a fun experience on or in the water – these memories are what connect us forever to the lakes. Twenty percent of the earth’s fresh surface water, just outside your door or down the street. Share your story today. For more information about the IJC, go to
