The Freshwater Roundtable is proud to announce two sessions that make up the 14th Annual Freshwater Summit. Sessions for the Freshwater Summit will be held virtually on October 20th and 22nd from 9:00 – 11:00am.

“We are unable to host an in-person event again this year, but still wanted to provide our community the latest research and information regarding the health of our Great Lakes,” said Christine Crissman, executive director of The Watershed Center. “We have another great lineup of professional speakers and look forward to discussing current challenges and opportunities facing local and regional freshwater efforts.” 

Presentations include wild rice restoration, the underwater mapping efforts of Lakebed 2030, wastewater infrastructure and COVID-19 testing, using qPCR for water quality monitoring, benthic changes in Lake Michigan, nature-based solutions for community resilience, and lightning talks about local initiatives.

“We are honored to offer our continued support of the Freshwater Summit,” said Dennis McCauley, president of the Great Lakes Environmental Center and sponsor of the Summit. “The Freshwater Summit is a highly valued venue that brings environmental professionals, citizens, and businesses up to date on matters that mean the most for the understanding and protection of the Grand Traverse Bay watershed.”

A full agenda for each session and registration information is available online. Registration is free and open to the public.
