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, Gary Wilson, and Brenna Wanous. This week, Gary compares the environmental restoration plan of the Everglades to that of the Great Lakes to gain insight on how the Great Lakes restoration might avoid the issues and challenges that the Everglades restoration faces.

Don't miss this great opportunity to read and comment on our featured issue - Everglades Restoration Stalled - What Can We Learn? - and the thoughts of Cameron Davis, in the Great Lakes Town Hall all this week!

Guest speakers contribute content on a Great Lakes topic of their choice for five days. While there are basic rules of conduct, guest speakers are unedited and diverse views are welcome. If you are interested in serving as a guest speaker, please reply to this email.
