Webinars & Meetings On GLRI Action Plan Development

May 3: Cameron Davis, Senior Advisor to the Administrator U.S. EPA on Great Lakes Issues announced that the Great Lakes Interagency Task Force (IATF) will be holding a series of webinars and meeting in May and June to receive comments on the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) Action Plan covering FY2010-2014. The IATF is seeking comments on how the FY10-14 Action Plan may be refined to increase the effectiveness of these investments during the FY15-19 Action Plan phase. The Action Plan identified the goals, objectives, measurable ecological targets, and specific actions to help rehabilitate the Great Lakes. The Action Plan is used by federal agencies to target investments to reduce toxic contamination, recover fish and wildlife habitat, increase nearshore health through the reduction of nutrient and other land-based pollution, prevent invasive species, and promote accountability, education and collaboration. The events are scheduled for: Thursday, May 23, 2-4 pm CDT - Webinar; Tuesday, May 28, 6-8 pm EDT - Buffalo, NY; Thursday, May 30, 6-8 pm CDT, Milwaukee, WI.
