We hope you will join us for a gathering of the Louisiana Water Network this Wednesday, July 29th from 11:30-1:15pm at the Garden Study Center in the Botanical Gardens of New Orleans City Park.
As we transition from the HIWC to the Louisiana Water Network and work together to build a Louisiana Water Economy, we are expanding efforts to discover and highlight Louisiana water leaders, explore the diversity of our competitive water sectors, and showcase statewide initiatives. This month’s water topic is “Ecotourism & Culture,” and we’ll learn about geographically and culturally diverse Louisiana-proud perspectives. See the attached agenda for details.
As always, please come prepared to share a water related news item with the group, and RSVP for a healthy $5 Mediterranean lunch.
Thanks for all you do to help build Louisiana’s Water Economy!
