Great Lakes Restoration: Day 1 in Detroit
from Wildlife Promise
We had a great Day 1 at the 7th Annual Great Lakes Restoration Conference in Detroit, where hundreds of Great Lakes advocates, scientists, policy makers and community leaders have gathered to help make Great Lakes restoration successful.
Here are a few highlights from attendees:
- EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson Announces EPA will Prioritize Great Lakes Restoration Funds in 2012 | Coalition Reaction
- Ducks Unlimited Leads Urban Restoration Tour to Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge—a Model of Successful Partnerships and Results
- East Side of Detroit Photoblog: Restoring and creating access to the riverfront.
- Live Feed Recording from the Great Lakes Town Hall, Featuring EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and other U.S. and Canadian Leaders
Conference participants including staff from NWF’s Great Lakes Regional Center are sharing their photos, blogs, video clips and responses to the discussions and sessions on how to protect and restore the Great Lakes–the incredible “freshwater seas” that hold one-fifth of the world’s surface freshwater.
Check back throughout the week for updates, videos, photos and live feeds from the Coalition.
