Each year the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition’s annual conference brings together a diverse group of more than 400 people from across the Great Lakes region. The conference provides a 3-day forum for participants to learn about important Great Lakes restoration issues, network at the largest annual gathering of Great Lakes supporters and activists, and develop strategies to advance federal, regional and local restoration goals.
In 2013, the Coalition’s Great Lakes restoration conference is again being held in collaboration with U.S. and Canadian federal environmental agencies, the International Joint Commission, the Great Lakes Commission and major funders in the region. The collective gathering—known as Great Lakes Week—will attract close to 700 activists, government representatives, industry leaders, tribal members, environmental consultants, and academic institutions under one roof to network and collaborate on issues of critical urgency facing the Great Lakes.
The conference will be held this year in Milwaukee, Wis., at the Delta Convention Center. Connected to the Delta Convention Center is the historic Hilton Milwaukee City Center, located in the heart of Milwaukee and in easy reach of some of Milwaukee’s most popular attractions. Built in 1927 in classic Art Deco style, Hilton Milwaukee City Center provides an elegant venue for your stay.
