Celebrate Water Door County is proud to present our 2019 Water Summit. A year of celebration and education will culminate with a three-day summit June 4-6, 2019. The summit is sponsored by Healthy Water Door County, a fund of the Door County Community Foundation, and The Enroth Fund of The Greater Milwaukee Foundation. Additional promotional help has been generously donated by the Peninsula Pulse and the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters.
A year of celebration has lead to this: a three-day summit at the Landmark Resort in Egg Harbor, featuring a keynote speaker, educational sessions, and field trips.
This event is open to the press.
