Pennsylvania Lake Erie Environmental Forum Meeting Presentations Available
Lake Erie and the surrounding watershed play a significant role in the economic vitality, cultural heritage, and overall environmental health of Erie County and the surrounding region. Recognizing this, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection organized the Pennsylvania Lake Erie Environmental Forum (PA LEEF), as a way to provide related environmental and regional information to the public and to also engage citizens in the process of environmental protection by providing the public with the opportunity to share local insights, information, and opinion.
The forums are open to the public, and feature topics like water quality, stormwater, scientific studies and research, policy issues, energy, agriculture, tributary and watershed updates, and larger-scale policies affecting all of the Great Lakes. Details about upcoming and past forums are highlighted below.
On Tuesday, March 19, 2019 the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Pennsylvania Sea Grant College Program hosted a meeting of the Pennsylvania Lake Erie Environmental Forum (PA-LEEF) at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center. The meeting focused on "Invasive Species in the Great Lakes from the Front Lines.”
Presentations from the meeting are now available on the Pennsylvania Sea Grant PA LEEF page.
