Session Summary: Partnering with America’s Other Great Waters
How can Great Lakes advocates improve the chances of full funding for Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in future years? Let congressional delegations from other Great Waters know that they have your support for their own regional restoration programs. Leaders from America’s Great Waters Coalition will discuss how building political power under a national unification strategy can maximize support for all Great Waters at a time when Congress is dramatically slashing budgets for environmental programs like the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and other regional restoration plans.
