The Door County Environmental Council (DCEC) welcomes Todd Ambs, campaign director of Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition, for a presentation on “Government Water Policy.”
Consisting of more than 145 environmental, conservation and outdoor recreation organizations, such as zoos, aquariums and museums, the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition strives to restore and protect the Great Lakes. Millions of people depend on the Great Lakes for drinking water, jobs and way of life. Work in the field is the backbone of the Coalition’s campaign to restore waterways, but the Coalition also has a strong presence in Washington, D.C., where they educate federal public officials about the importance of Great Lakes restoration to secure federal funding for their projects.
“I like to link the lack of good water policy development in government today to the continuing erosion of the engagement of public servants and public in general, in the process of government,” said Ambs.
Ambs discusses the past, present and future of government water policy June 27, 7 pm at the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor. For more information call 920.743.6003 or visit dcec-wi.org.
