We’re excited to be at Cedar Point – the roller coaster capital of the world – on the shores of Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio, as the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition hosts our annual conference. We’re excited about this year’s conference—our 12th—where attendees can enjoy interesting presentations, fun field trips, and exciting receptions and rides (!).Lake-Erie-Cedar-Point-Sunrise-2016-09-19

This year, we’re hosting a presidential candidate forum on the last day of the conference, Thursday, September 22—where both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump representatives will attend to lay out their Great Lakes platforms.

For those coming to Sandusky, we look forward to seeing you there.
