In collaboration with the Ohio River Basin 2020 Summit and Symposium, UofL's Sustainability Roundtable invites you to this very special online conversation to conclude the Summit, which is free and open to the public. Join staff from the National Wildlife Federation in an interactive discussion about a proposed science-based framework for ecosystem restoration that considers threats – including habitat loss, climate change, and others – to the Ohio River and its tributaries, impacts from those threats, and potential approaches to restoring the aquatic environment in the basin.

We believe we have a historic opportunity to engage many diverse stakeholders in crafting a visionary ecosystem restoration plan for the Ohio River that leads to a strong restoration economy, supports people who have historically borne the brunt of pollution and environmental degradation – people of color, rural and low-income communities, and tribal nations – and benefits fish, wildlife, and many other species in the basin.

Come prepared to offer ideas, energy, and insight. It’s going to take all of us to restore the Ohio River and the rivers, wetlands, and habitats in the 15-state region that contribute to a healthy and productive ecosystem. Working together, we can make a difference. So please join in the discussion and participate in the crafting of a visionary ecosystem restoration plan from Day 1.

Register here by Sept. 30, 2020.
