Great Lakes


Each year in March more than 100 Great Lakes advocates join us in Washington, D.C. to share their stories with members of congress. State organizers in each Great Lakes state pull together individuals that can collectively tell the story of restoration success, drinking water investment need, and the importance of conservation action. This year, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we’ll be moving to virtual meetings with legislators.
