Ever wonder if our local rivers and streams are clean and healthy? Want to know what your community can do to help alleviate flooding, reduce runoff, improve water quality and engage local residents in a positive way? Get answers to these questions and much more at the 2015 DuPage Environmental Summit, presented by DuPage County Stormwater Management and The Conservation Foundation, on February 19th, 2015. This FREE day of exhibits and workshops will be held from 11am to 5:00pm in the Ballroom at the Naperville Campus of Northern Illinois University.
Our local rivers and streams have taken a beating over the past 100 years. Stormwater runoff, flooding, erosion, pollution and habitat degradation have taken its toll since we have urbanized our DuPage landscape. But, great strides have been taken to improve these conditions and we are finally headed in the right direction.
Please join us at the 2015 DuPage Environmental Summit and learn about how our streams are faring and what you can do at the local community level to help. Presentations will be made by local experts on the current status, condition and issues facing our local rivers and streams, large-scale programs and restoration projects being implemented, and what educational and citizen engagement opportunities local communities can implement to help restore and clean up our local waterways. This event is free but online registration is requested.
