Like the town meetings on which it is modeled, the Great Lakes Town
Hall (http://www.greatlakestownhall) provides a "space" where residents from all across the Great Lakes
basin can come together to
identify common concerns, set the political agenda, share and develop
collective solutions, and demand - as a public - that the Lakes are
clean, abundant, and natural for generations to come.
This week, the Town Hall is pleased to interview Peter Annin, author of The Great Lakes Water Wars. Peter characterizes the question of who is entitled to Lake water as the "Spotted Owl Issue for the Great Lakes." Also featured this week are essays by Darlene DeHudy, president of Muskegon Save Our Shoreline. Darlene writes about a successful citizen campaign to prevent industrial wastewater dumping into Lake Michigan.
Don't miss this great opportunity
to read and comment on our featured issue - "The Spotted Owl Issue for
the Great Lakes" - and the views of our guest speaker, Darlene DeHudy, in the Great Lakes Town Hall: http://www.greatlakestownhall.org.
And while you're visiting, don't forget to vote on how we should be prioritizing Great
Lakes restoration - look for the "What Do You Think?" box on the Town
Hall's home page.
