Each of the five Great Lakes is at or near historic high water levels. Yet roughly ten years ago, which is the blink of an eye in the historic trends of Great Lakes water levels, all of the lakes were at or near record low levels.

The consequences are individual and regional. From shortening boating seasons to damaging to critical infrastructure and homes, water levels are a topic of conversation at every corner of the region. What’s going on to cause these dramatic highs and lows?

Join the Alliance for the Great Lakes for a conversation with experts and community leaders about Great Lakes water levels. Our panel includes:

Kathryn Bryk Friedman, Alliance for the Great Lakes Board of Directors, Vice Chair – Policy and Chair of Policy Task Force

Peter Annin, Northland College, Director of the Mary Griggs Burke Center for Freshwater Innovation, and author of The Great Lakes Water Wars

Joel Brammeier, Alliance for the Great Lakes, President & CEO

Jim Howe, The Nature Conservancy - Executive Director, Central & Western NY Chapter

Natalie Johnson, Save The Dunes, Executive Director
