Partnerships: Source Water Collaborative (SWC) Mid-Year Update

NALMS is a member organization of the Source Water Collaborative. SWC Members, As co-chair, one of my goals is a mid-year update on the Source Water Collaborative’s (SWC’s) Action Plan and progress, so I wanted to take a few moments to summarize our work this past year for all members. In our first year with member financial contributions, I think it’s an important opportunity to provide a big picture perspective, so everyone understands the sum of our efforts and collaboration. The SWC helped promote effective working relationships for Farm Bill implementation since the Farm Bill was signed into law in December 2018 via the ...

As a member of the Consortium of Aquatic Science Societies (CASS), NALMS, along with eleven fellow aquatic science societies, has added its voice to comments submitted on the proposed rule to revise the definition of Waters of the United States, or WOTUS. The scientific societies, representing more than 200,000 individuals with diverse areas of expertise, "strongly oppose the proposed Rule and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (Agencies) decision to re-write and rescind the science-based definitions contained in the 2015 Clean Water Rule (2015 CWR).” You may read the letter in full ...

Lakes Appreciation BINGO

In honor of Lakes Appreciation Month, we were proud to partner with our friends at Earth Science Laboratories to create a fun, kid-friendly game that helps raise awareness of lakes and the issues they face. From ESL: "Our lakes are such a valuable resource. They provide water, energy and enjoyment. This simple “bingo” game is designed to stir creativity, curiosity and action. So, dive right in! Your participation and interaction will push awareness about lake issues to the forefront. It’s reminder for us all to pause and appreciate something we often take for granted.
