Great Lakes Restoration Conference Field Trip Application
Dear Healing Our Waters – Great Lakes Coalition Members and Partners,
HOW Coalition co-chairs and staff have decided to reschedule the in-person Great Lakes Conference for one year. The Conference will now be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in fall 2021. We are weighing a few options for activities in October 2020 to keep our coalition engaged and informed while staying safe and avoiding travel.
I know this is disappointing. The conference is a centerpiece for our coalition--convening our partners, building a great lakes community, learning from each other, and meeting new people and seeing old friends. But safety and public health are values we all share, and are at the core of our work.
If you have any thoughts or suggestions for good virtual activities and content for the fall, please send them our way. The Coalition is committed to continuing to serve as a convener for members and organizations across the Great Lakes who are committed to healthy ecosystems and healthy communities.
For us, the staff of the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition, we will continue to do the best we can under these trying circumstances to advance our mission to restore and protect the Great Lakes for all. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Celia Haven, field manager for the Coalition, can be reached at HavenC@nwf.org
, and I can be reached at RubinL@nwf.org
Hoping that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.
