Rebecca’s presentation is a follow up to the content provided by Phil Cernera at the January 31 Club Meeting. Phil is the Director of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe’s Lake Management Department. During his visit to the club, he outlined the tribe’s decision to withdraw from the State Management Agreement for Lake Coeur d’Alene. He also discussed a planned EPA lake study that was pending at the time. Now that the study is complete, it seemed appropriate to get an update.
As a primer, please read the following articles by CDA Press and the Spokesman Review. They detail the ongoing struggle to manage this vital natural resource.
Maintaining our connection as a Club is essential. Therefore, until we can meet again in person, our meetings will take place on-line. This approach ensures that we can continue to talk, ask questions, discuss issues and stay informed.
Our first online meeting this past Friday went quite well. Although there were a few minor hiccups, our Club President and meeting coordinator Ruben Miranda carefully explained how to resolve them. So, don’t let this new way of communicating discourage you from participating. It is important that you be a part of the conversation and stay connected.
