In partnership with the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, Freshwater Future created a resolution (“Keep Asian Carp Out of the Great Lakes”) municipalities can pass to grow the chorus of support for finding a solution that will stop Asian carp. Over the past few years our efforts have shown that when we, the Great Lakes Community, speak up, decision makers listen. Demonstrated by the Stop Invasive Species Act, which passed last summer after tens of thousands of Great Lakes citizens contacted their Members of Congress calling for a solution. But, there is more to do.
The latest municipal leaders to pass the resolution include Milwaukee and Rhinelander, WI; Erie, PA and the town of Collingwood, ON. Want to know who else has passed the resolution?
