December 6, 2013

EnviroScience restoration scientist, Julie Bingham, traveled to Capitol Hill on December 3 and 4th as an invited guest of the Ohio Environmental Council and Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition of the National Parks Conservation Association.  Julie met with Representative David Joyce as well as staff of Representatives Bob Gibbs, Marcy Kaptur, and Tim Ryan.  On the other side of the hill, Julie met with staff of Senator Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman’s office to discuss the positive impacts that Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding has had on our region.  Julie was specifically highlighting the successes of RiverWorks’ recent Euclid Creek Lacustrine Restoration project as an example of ecological restoration, positive economic benefits and how the funding was instrumental in creating lasting partnerships and leveraging local resources.
