Throughout September, the Center for Agro-Ecology is hosting five regional workshops with detailed information on how counties can clean local waters. These workshops will provide an overview of how things are going so far, especially from the teams tackling agriculture runoff, and will provide financing and technical tools for counties struggling with urban pollution.
Here is more information, including a full agenda.
To register for these workshops, go here. (Warning: you have to scroll down a long way to find the ‘class’ you are registering for! Scroll to the Natural Resources and Water Quality category, then find your Fall Phase II WIP Workshop on the drop down menu.)
Can’t attend? Urge your local elected officials to go. Our local leaders must show they are committed to this process and committed to cleaning local waters. Attending these workshops will not only give them the tools and information to do a better job drafting their plans, but it will show they are engaged and interested in the process.
