Water resources and natural capital such as landscapes and agriculture are the heart of the Finger Lakes and economy. In addition to supporting the tourism and agriculture industries that comprise over $3B in economic activity in the region, the lakes provide drinking water to over one million residents in Upstate NY communities. Threats to the lakes and actions that citizens can take to protect the lakes will be presented.

This talk is offered in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution's "Water/Ways" traveling exhibit, on display at Wells College through Sept. 29.
