NYSDEC would like to remind those interested of the upcoming opportunity to join regional stakeholders in a basin wide partnership to advance key priorities for New York’s Great Lakes basin, as identified in the state’s interim Great Lakes Action Agenda (GLAA).  The focus of this next round of meetings will be on identifying collaborative solutions to watershed challenges and project opportunities that can be advanced in the near-term to support GLAA implementation.

All NYS Great Lakes stakeholders are invited to participate — including environmental orgs, academic institutions, state and federal agencies, local government, individuals and other diverse stakeholder groups (business, health, recreation, planning, etc).

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