Join us Friday, September 20th at 5:30pm at the Panida Theater for Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeepers 1st Annual Water Summit
Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper Water Summit - Discovering the Unseen
In celebration of Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeepers 10th Anniversary protecting the water quality of Lake Pend Oreille, LPOW will be hosting its first annual Water Summit, which will take place in Sandpoint, Idaho on Friday, September 20th at the Panida theater. The theme of the event is "using science and technology to explore our waters' tiniest organisms and biggest influencers."
The Summit will feature five short engaging and charismatic talks that expose new ideas that are supported by scientific evidence. The five speakers are experts in aquatic science and technology. Four of the talks will focus on the smallest inhabitants of the aquatic environment (microbes), and why they are essential to a healthy ecosystem. Our last speaker, from Earth Economics, will speak to the economic value of our natural resources and how pollution impacts value. We are very excited about our speaker line-up.
Following these short but powerful presentations, we will have a special keynote speaker. We are excited to host this person again as a celebration of our 10th year. This activist and writer will inspire you to continue to fight for fishable, swimmable, and drinkable waterways.
