Check out our Green Ideas & Ham event tomorrow morning about protecting clean water! https://www.facebook.com/events/1547748965459458/
Join us for another Green Ideas and Ham breakfast forum on November 18th! Whether it’s getting drinking water from the Mississippi River, fishing in one of our 10,000 lakes, or sightseeing along Lake Superior, clean water is extremely important to Minnesota. Unfortunately, not all our waters are getting the protections they deserve. Loopholes in the Clean Water Act have left nearly 47,000 miles of streams in Minnesota, and over 2 million across the country, not guaranteed protection under the law. We hope you'll join us to discuss what these loopholes mean for clean water, and what we can do about it! We'll hear from local experts on the EPA's proposed rule to close these loopholes. Speaking on why clean water is so important to wildlife is local expert Gary Botzek, Executive Director of the Minnesota Conservation Federation. Doug Norris, Wetlands Program Coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, will also speak about what the clean water rule will mean here in Minnesota. RSVP to attend the event: http://www.webaction.org/site/Survey?ACTION_REQUIRED=URI_ACTION_USER_REQUESTS&SURVEY_ID=86984 We look forward to seeing you at the Red Stag on November 18th!
