GLIN==> Great Lakes Restoration Planning Workshops

The Great Lakes Commission is sponsoring a series of workshops 
throughout the Great Lakes states to solicit public input on the 
development and implementation of priorities for ecosystem restoration. 
The initiative is funded by the National Sea Grant Program and each 
workshop features a partnership between the state's Sea Grant Program, 
governor's office, relevant state agencies and the Great Lakes Commission.

Participants will have an opportunity to review and discuss restoration 
priorities developed by the Council of Great Lakes Governors, and share 
additional thoughts and ideas relevant to their jurisdiction and the 
entire region. Workshop outcomes will be captured in proceedings 
documents and shared with Great Lakes leadership and the entire 
community of stakeholders in the interest of promoting consensus and 
unity of purpose in restoration and protection initiatives.

Details on upcoming workshops are provided below. For agendas and

February 24, 2004
Parma, Ohio

The format of Ohio's meeting has been designed to allow maximum 
opportunity to gain input from the public. Therefore, beyond brief 
introductory remarks, there will be no formal presentations. There will 
be a station for each of the nine priorities at which participants may 
ask questions and record their comments, as well as a 10th station for 
more general comments.

February 25, 2004
Erie, Pennsylvania

The workshop will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, 
February 25, 2004 at the Waldron Center on Gannon University's campus in 
Erie, Pennsylvania. Policy makers and opinion leaders representing 
diverse sectors of Pennsylvania’s Great Lakes community are invited. 
Plenary and breakout sessions will provide opportunities for all voices 
to be heard. Workshop outcomes will be forwarded to our Great Lakes 
governors, Congressional members, and the larger Great Lakes community 
for guidance as restoration planning efforts move forward. There is no 
charge for this event, and lunch will be provided. However, you must
