Join us in Sheboygan, WI, for the 8th biennial State of Lake Michigan and the 13th annual Great Lakes Beach Association Conference. The conference will be held at the newly renovated Blue Harbor resort on the shore of Lake Michigan. In addition to eighteen sessions on Lake Michigan and Great Lakes beach issues, there will be field trips to restoration project sites, workshops, and an evening poster reception. The Blue Harbor and Sheboygan offer many amenities and activities for companions and families to enjoy.
The joint conference typically draws more than 350 resource managers, scientists, planners, elected officials, and interested citizens -- all working to improve and protect Lake Michigan and Great Lakes beaches.
