All are welcome.

"Well be taking a look at conservation through a national and regional lens, and then drilling down into what's going on here in Porter County--the goals were setting; the projects were moving forward; and the metrics were hitting," Barker said. "And then well explore specific steps that everyone can take to contribute,"

"During the past several months, we've welcomed several keynote presenters from the economic development arena to our luncheons," Chamber Executive Director Heather Ennis said. "This month, we felt that it was very important to hear from one of the regions leaders in environmental sustainability. Save the Dunes is one of the country's oldest conservation organizations, and were honored that Nicole is taking the time to come and speak with us."
