Asian Carp Conf in Novi THIS Thursday February 25, 2010
« on: February 24, 2010, 12:54:26 AM »

Michigan United Conservation Clubs
Contact: Erin McDonough, Executive Director
Tony Hansen, Deputy Director

LANSING, MICH—The Michigan United Conservation Clubs will host an Asian Carp Conference on Thursday, February 25 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Conference Center at Rock Financial Showplace, 46100 Grand River in Novi.  The Outdoorama sport show opens at 2 p.m.
that day and runs through Sunday.

Panelists representing key stakeholders and government agencies involved with the impending crisis, which threatens to destroy Michigan’s $7 billion sportfishing industry, will present:  
*   Michigan DNRE:  Ken DeBeaussaert, Director of the Office of Great Lakes
*   Michigan Charter Boat Association:  Past President Janice Deaton
*   MUCC:  Dave Nyberg, Legislative Affairs manager
*   Michigan Attorney General:  Peter Manning, Chief of the Environment, Natural Resource and Agriculture Division

Erin McDonough, MUCC executive director, will moderate.  “Our goal is to educate the public on this critical issue, which has frightening implications for the environment and economies of all Great Lakes states,” McDonough said. “Concerned citizens will receive the latest information and can ask questions of the presenters.”  
Several MUCC affiliate clubs will offer action petitions for the public to sign during the four-day Outdoorama, which MUCC started in 1974.  There is no fee to attend the Asian Carp Conference; however, admission to the show is $10 for adults and $4 for children 6 to 14.  Kids 5 and under get in free.  
The MUCC, which formed in 1937, is Michigan’s oldest and largest conservation organization. Updates on Asian carp and other issues are at   Show details are at

Support our efforts to conserve Michigan’s natural resources by remembering MUCC in your contributions and planned giving.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.
