What do high water levels mean for Michigan? Join us online to discuss.

Bridge Michigan invites readers to join our team Sept. 29 for our monthly Lunch Break discussion, this time focused on a critical environmental issue facing communities along the Great Lakes. 

Grab your lunch and pull up a chair in front of your computer as we discuss how high water levels are impacting coastal communities and what is being done to prepare, both environmentally and economically.
