Watershed Conference



I just learned about a Watershed Conference to be held in Kalamazoo next week.  
It’s called “Great Lakes Watersheds Management: Tools for County & Local 
Governments”, sponsored by national Association of Counties among others.  It is 
on October 17 & 18 at the Radisson Hotel in Kalamazoo.  EPA Assistant 
Administrator Robert Perciasepe and Congressman Fred Upton (R-St. Joseph) will 
be speaking on the 17th.  Topics include watershed dynamics, carrying capacity, 
impacts, zoning, watershed management tools, and case studies.  Cost is only 
$45!!! and includes 2 lunches, materials, and receptions!  As of 3 PM Friday, 
the had about 100 registrations, but are hoping to double that.  For more 
information on registration, call Abby Friedman at (202) 942 4225.
