Model D and MetroMode Speaker Series: Backyard to Big Picture RSVP

In the past few months, our series "Freshwater Metropolis" in Model D and MetroMode has taken a look at how water is an integral part of our identity in Southeast Michigan and a resource that requires our protection. We've introduced the issues around water quality and stormwater runoff and how our actions, from what we do in our backyards to how we develop policy, affect our watersheds and the greater Great Lakes Basin.

Now it's time for you to be a part of the conversation. Join us Thursday, May 23 at 6 PM on the campus of Lawrence Technological University in Southfield to hear from a panel of experts, activists, and business owners about how green and blue infrastructure are transforming our region and learn what you can do to be a part of this movement.

Don Carpenter - Department of Civil Engineering, Lawrence Technological University

Our Panel:
Khalil Ligon - Lower Eastside Action Plan (LEAP)
