Our water is in trouble and we are all in the same boat. We need clean water for drinking and industry, and healthy ecosystems to support the life around us. It is time for us all to jump in, learn about what can be done, and get going on doing it!
Here’s a first step. On January 11, the Galena Rotary partners with the League of Women Voters Jo Daviess County to hold a day-long conference at Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa in Galena. This conference, titled “Water, We're all in the Same Boat” will be part of the 30th Annual Galena Rotary Roundtable. National and state speakers will describe water quality issues and solutions, leading to action. Regional workshop presenters will share the plans, policies and practices for successful water resource management in northwest Illinois' Apple Plum Watershed.
As a bonus, on January 10 there will be chance to socialize over wine and cheese while playing the Watershed Game, an interactive tool that helps individuals understand the connection between land use and water quality.
Come and join the team – clean water is critical for all of us!
