To everyone who came to the Summit, we wanted to thank you for such a successful event. It has been a long time coming and we are pleased with how things turned out. We hope you enjoyed your time and learned something new.

Thank you to everyone that participated in the Celebrate Water over the last year. It was with your hard work and talents that our time of celebration and education was a success. 

Thank you to the ERIC team at UW-Oshkosh for helping us take on this endeavor. You’re expertise and assistance was a HUGE help and why we were able to pull all of the planning together.

Thank you to all of the presenters. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to come visit us and share your knowledge with others. 

Thank you to Dan Egan for taking the time to make your way up to the Door during your busy schedule. Your work was the impetus for this celebration and it was great to have you there to celebrate with.

A big thank you goes out to Jill Heinerth. Both your keynote presentation and session were inspirational and educational. While your time here was short, we hope you enjoyed every minute of it and that you may come back one day to dive the shipwrecks and escarpments of Door County!

A special thank you goes out to Anne Egan, the woman behind the movement. You were the fearless leader of a ragtag group of optimists and were able to create something of meaning. We appreciate your leadership and dedication to our cause!

Big shout out to our sponsors who made this Summit possible! Make sure to check them out and thank them for their support. And thank you to all those that made donations. Every penny helped made this a successful event!

And not least, thanks to the Peninsula Pulse and the Door County Community Foundation for providing the structural support to make this possible.

This is just the end of a year dedicated to Celebrate Water. But it is only the beginning of a new effort on the part of all of us to become Advocates for the preservation and protection of these waters we hold so dear. So stay tuned for further Celebrate Water events, information on accessing the videos of the Summit and opportunities that may arise for further engagement in water preservation efforts.

Thank you one and all!

  1. Let’s keep all the inspired people together to reinforce persistence in the face of faults and hope for opportunities, and reporting progress. And to find common goals and objectives that reflect priority actions and a common Green Calendar to help the many fine Green organizations collaborate, and define actions that can be moved forward by building community-wide coalition.

  2. Many thanks to those who organized this major year-long initiative and especially Anne Egan for spearheading it. Its success in engaging constituencies across the spectrum has been remarkable. Great work!

The Great Lakes make up 84% of North America’s surface fresh water and about 21% of the world’s supply of surface fresh water.

The Great Lakes water system is the largest inland shipping system in the world.

The only Great Lake entirely within the U.S. is Lake Michigan.

Lake Michigan’s shores hold the largest fresh water sand dunes in the world.

The Great Lakes were formed due to glacial movements that caused depressions in the earth that eventually filled with water.

Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are considered one lake hydrologically since they are connected by the Straits of Mackinac.

Although it falls under the category of what we define as a lake, Lake Superior acts more like an inland sea.

There are 9,000-year-old animal-herding structures below Lake Huron.

The Lake Huron shoreline extends 3,827 miles and encompasses 30,000 islands. It is the longest shoreline of the Great Lakes.

The water in Lake Erie is recycled every 2.6 years, the shortest of any Great Lake.
