Pennsylvania Update

During the past few months GLAHNF has been delighted to add our new Pennsylvania Hub – Lake Erie-Allegheny Earth Force. Annette Marshall, OSB, will serve as our Hub Coordinator. LE-AEF, formerly known as Glinodo Center, is an advocacy-based (501(c)(3) organization located in Erie, Pennsylvania with an incredible history of environmental work. We are fortunate to gain the expertise and energy of this new Hub.

Congratulations to Hub Coordinator Charlie Luthin on a job well done for his part in building a coalition of over 70 organizations representing more then 330,000 members in Wisconsin to fight the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in SWANCC, which held that wetlands isolated on the landscape were outside of federal protection. With Charlie’s guidance and a lot of hard work by many other activists, the State of Wisconsin now has a state law that gives back protection to those isolated wetlands, the first state to do so. Charlie and Wisconsin Wetlands Association have shown how coalition-building can be an extremely effective tool in protecting aquatic habitats!
