As well as experts speaking on issues affecting the Great Lakes, the co-founder of the Lake Huron Centre will be the keynote speaker at tonight's 20th anniversary gala.

The conference will look at issues like water levels on the Lakes, which have increased rapidly from near-record lows earlier this decade.
