About the event
Water Legacy May 16 | 5:30-6:30pm | FREE | Zoom Register at: https://reg126.imperisoft.com/cche/ProgramDetail/3436383933/Registration.aspx www.mycche.org | 218-387-3411 | email@example.com Most of us in Minnesota take our abundant, fresh water for granted. We expect that Minnesota’s government will protect the environment from pollution and protect the public good. Based on 13 years of working with WaterLegacy, Paula Maccabee will explain threats to Lake Superior and northern Minnesota watersheds, habitats, wild rice, and human health. Paula will also share the work that WaterLegacy is doing to prevent sulfide mining pollution, defend wild rice, impose guardrails to prevent regulatory failure, and strengthen community capacity to protect clean water. Presenter: Paula Maccabee graduated Yale Law School in 1981. She has spent more than 40 years as a public interest lawyer and policy advocate. For the past 13 years, Paula has served as WaterLegacy’s Advocacy Director and Counsel, working to protect Minnesota’s water quality, health, climate, and regulatory integrity to serve the public interest. This event is in partnership with the Cook County Higher Education & Cook County Local Energy Project (CCLEP).
