The 13th Annual Great Lakes Restoration Conference–hosted by the Healing Our Waters® (HOW) Great Lakes Coalition–will take place October 17-19, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency in Buffalo, New York.
Each year the HOW Coalition shares the results of those efforts and plans for future work at an annual Great Lakes Restoration Conference. This conference
is the event of the year for Great Lakes advocates from throughout the eight-state region of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, as well as the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
Attendees include hundreds of representatives from conservation and environmental organizations; hunting and angling groups; federal, state and tribal agencies;
city and local governments; local watershed organizations, Great Lakes scientists, foundations, academia, and the private sector.
This year we will celebrate the 13th anniversary of the Healing Our Waters–Great Lakes Coalition, educate attendees about the current challenges facing the
Great Lakes region and provide an inspirational agenda for everyone at the conference. Your support of the conference will underscore your company’s or
organization’s commitment to our collective work on behalf of the Great Lakes and will help all of us to continue this important work and these important
annual restoration conferences.
