The State of Lake Michigan Conference

The 7th biennial State of Lake Michigan (SOLM) and the 11th annual Great Lakes Beach Association Conference was held in Michigan City, Indiana, Sept. 26-28. The conference brought together elected officials, scientists, resource managers, planners, students, and citizens working to improve Great Lakes beaches and Lake Michigan, as outlined in the Lakewide Management Plan. Activities and events included field trips, workshops, and a reception with speakers from local, state, and federal government and John Goss, President Obama’s Carp Czar.

We thank those that attended this event and to everyone involved in the planning. It truly was a group effort and the results were worth the effort!
