Great Lakes Action Agenda Work Group Meetings March 2nd, 3rd, 7th & 8th

NYSDEC invites you to join other regional stakeholders in a basinwide partnership 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). Join us in March:

  • to help us select critical actions within the draft sub basin work plans for focused collaboration and implementation, and
  • for a presentation by Natural Heritage Program on a new riparian restoration and protection planning tool created especially for New York’s Great Lakes basin.

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