GLIN==> This Week in the GL Town Hall - Debra Shore, Commissioner of the Chicago Water Reclamation District



This week in the Great Lakes Town Hall – Debra Shore, Commissioner of the Chicago Water Reclamation District – Join the discussion online!

This week, the Town Hall is pleased to welcome Debra Shore, founding editor of Chicago Wilderness Magazine and the first "green" commissioner to be elected to the Chicago Water Reclamation District in over 20 years. Debra reflects on our opportunity to "transition from viewing stormwater as a problem to viewing rainwater as a liquid asset to be captured, treasured, saved and not squandered." Don't miss your chance to read and respond to Debra's essays every day this week - only in the Great Lakes Town Hall!

 

In addition to guest speakers, the Great Lakes Town Hall focuses on a new featured Great Lakes issue each week, provided by co-moderators Jeffrey Potter, Dave Dempsey and Gary Wilson. This week, Dave heralds the 100th anniversary of Rachel Carson's birth and the role the Great Lakes have played in the development of our environmental consciousness.

 

Don't miss this great opportunity to read and comment on our featured issue - Rachel Carson and the Great Lakes - and the thoughts of our guest speaker, Debra Shore, in the Great Lakes Town Hall.
