Blue Drinks’ Beach Party in November

  • The Flatiron & Firkin 49 Wellington St E Toronto, ON, M5E 1C9 Canada

Blue Drinks Toronto and your friends at Lake Ontario Waterkeeper are kicking off the 14th Annual Great Lakes Beach Association Conference and recreational water users – we want you to join us!

Beaches are often thought of as places to have fun but these dynamic ecosystems are also critical habitat and breeding areas for plants and animals. Perhaps due to their unique location between land and water, and between environment and public health, beaches can languish in a black hole between water and terrestrial management. Find out the economic benefits of beach restoration and what is being done to keep our beaches clean and safe. Also learn about the safety of Toronto’s beaches compared to those around the Great Lakes.

 

Featured speakers:

Tom Edge, President of the Great Lakes Beach Association & Research Scientist at Environment Canada

Krystyn Tully, Vice President of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper & Co-Creator of Swim Guide

Nancy Goucher, Blue Drinks Coordinator & Water Program Manager at Environmental Defence

Dr. Julie Kinzelman, Health Department Laboratory Director, City of Racine, Wisconsin
