Here are workshops at River featuring Great Lakes United presentations:

Cleaning Up Toxic Hotspots: Lessons Learnt

have worked over the past twenty years for the cleanup of the toxic
hotspots in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River basin. The focuses

sediments problems. The role of public advisory committees will also be
explored.
