The North Face Happy Hour - Conversations that Matter 3:00pm–5:00 pm

Saturday, May 25 at Elks Park - The North Face Basecamp - The stakes to protect the world’s freshwater systems have never been higher. The Nature Conservancy’s 2030 Goals for freshwater push us to do more than ever for our planet’s lakes, rivers and wetlands. Unless we course correct now, our freshwater resources will continue to deteriorate at alarming rates and the impacts – including flooding, water scarcity and biodiversity loss – will worsen.
