MANITOWOC ó The Wisconsin DNR will host public comment sessions on Sept. 28 in Milwaukee and Sept. 30 in Ashwaubenon on behalf of the Council of Great Lakes Governors.

The meetings are designed to gather input from people for use in the development of a final draft agreement, known as the Annex 2001, updating the protection and management of the Great Lakes.

The meetings will have an open house from 4 to 6 p.m., and formal presentation and public comment period beginning at 6 p.m.

Clean Wisconsin, a Wisconsin environmental organization, has developed a few tips and provision highlights to inform and inspire people to get involved and share their passion for the Great Lakes.

Additional information, including Clean Wisconsinís Water Policy Director Derek Scheerís testimony at the recent Chicago regional Great Lakes hearing, can be found at www.cleanwisconsin.org.

Great Lakes visuals, a customizable letter to the Council, fact sheets on the threats to the region, and frequent updates on the issues can also be found at the site.

In Ashwaubenon, the meeting is at the Village Hall, 2155 Holmgren Way. In Milwaukee, the meeting will be held at the State Fair Park Youth Center on 84th Street.
