SEJ Post-Conference Tour: North America's Great Lakes

Organized and presented by the Institute for Journalism & Natural Resources

Tour dates: Sunday, October 7 – Wednesday, October 10, 2018

SEJ and IJNR invite journalist attendees of SEJ's 28th annual conference in Flint to apply for this expenses-paid post-conference tour.

The Great Lakes comprise nearly 20 percent of the world’s fresh surface water and touch everything from pristine Canadian forests to urban centers like Chicago, Detroit and Cleveland. The lakes also carry timber, grain, copper and iron to the world. We’ll take participants into Michigan’s eastern Upper Peninsula and the convergence of the three largest lakes — Superior, Huron and Michigan — to look at a wide range of issues that impact both the Great Lakes and North America. Potential topics include Enbridge’s Line 5, wind power, aquatic invasive species, climate impacts on northern forests, logging, shipping, mining infrastructure and legacy pollution.

Tour departs following SEJ’s Sunday morning program and returns to Flint no later than 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 10. There will be no cost to journalists accepted to participate in the tour. For more information or to apply, please visit Application deadline: September 21.
