A Great Lakes Action Agenda Work Group meeting will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 26 at the Reinstein Nature Center, 93 Honorine Dr., Depew.

Individuals and all Great Lakes stakeholders in New York State are invited to participate, including environmental organizations, academic institutions, state and federal agencies, local government and other groups such as business, health, recreation and planning.

Please RSVP to greatlakes@dec.ny.gov at least one week in advance of the meeting. Please indicate which work group meeting you’ll be attending. (There will be other meetings in Pittsford, Depauville and Lyons.)

Work plans and past meeting minutes are available online by joining the Great Lakes Clean Communities network Great Lakes Action Agenda (GLAA NY) group at http://www.glccn.org/
The meeting aims to advance ecosystem-based management opportunities for New York’s Great Lakes basin, as identified in the state’s interim Great Lakes Action Agenda (GLAA).  Meeting objectives include:

  • Share program updates
  • Share progress of sub basin work plan implementation
  • Develop a collective understanding of EBM and how it is being demonstrated through pilot project implementation
  • Discuss current status, needs, and next steps for advancing EBM pilot projects

Four sub basin work groups provide a unique opportunity to connect, coordinate and collaborate with other groups and agencies working locally and basinwide.
