Our Great Lakes in the 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities

Meeting Room
11/13/2018 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Just 3% of the water on earth is freshwater and the Great Lakes have 20% of that supply. Two million people worldwide today face some sort of water-supply shortages and 5 million die from water-borne diseases. What are the specific stressors that face our Great Lakes today and what are we doing about it? Anne Moser of the Wisconsin Water Library will introduce the current science and the issues facing our precious resource.

A reception for the art show, "Under the Surface: A Photographic Journey of Hope and Healing" will follow the presentation. Food will be provided.
