The 11th annual Great Lakes Restoration Conference, hosted by the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition, will be held from September 29 to October 1 at the Drake Hotel.

The collective gathering known as Great Lakes Week is expected to attract 700 activists, government representatives, industry leaders, tribal members, environmental consultants and academic institutions under one roof to network and collaborate on issues of critical urgency facing the Great Lakes.
