Water Summit Sponsorship
Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper's 10th Anniversary celebration event, the Water Summit, will take place on Friday, September 20th. The theme of our Water Summit is “Discovering the Unseen – Exploring Our Waters’ Tiniest Organisms and Biggest influencers.” Five dynamic speakers will discuss innovative technology and scientific breakthroughs that influence water quality. Our scientists will share fascinating stories about phytoplankton (algae), bacteria and viruses that live and thrive in different types of aquatic environments. From bacteria that produce actual electricity to viruses that inhabit deep-sea volcanoes, we guarantee that you’ll walk away with a brand-new appreciation for the unseen. Only one of our speakers will deviate from our “unseen” theme to speak on the economic impact of clean water on the tourism of Sandpoint. This will be a real thought provoking eye-opener! And if these intriguing speakers were not enough of a draw, the founder of Waterkeeper Alliance, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., will end the night as our keynote speaker.
