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,

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.
