DEC's Great Lakes Program invites you to "sign on" this summer to learn about partners & projects working to protect, restore and enhance our Great Lakes lands and waters, and funding opportunities to advance additional projects, in support of NY's Great Lakes Action Agenda (GLAA).

This webinar series is being held in place of our regular spring GLAA work group meetings. We hope it will be a valuable opportunity to learn about what's happening in other parts of the watershed, and inspire us to continue this important work with renewed energy and reinvigorated ideas.
