Watercolor by Barbara Spring


July 5 and the water is warm enough to swim in

Lake Michigan.  Please be careful.  Go in if the Green flag is flying at the State Park

Oil and Water Do Not Mix

.Oil and Water Don't Mix   Please sign the petition.

Enbridge runs an oil pipeline through the Straits of Mackinac and it needs to be shut down.  It is aging and we cannot afford an oil spill into the freshwater seas.  Click the link above and sign the petition.

The pipeline is at the tip of the mitt where the current is very storn. Our water is in jeopardy.

Wetlands are an Important Part of the Great Lakes' Ecosystem

A red fox strolls through a wetland while a mayfly passes by.  Wetlands filter out pollutants and give shelter to young fish, frogs and turtles and other parts of the living web.

Some people may bulldoze these areas thinking they are worthless, but they are necessary and help sustain the ecosystem of the Great Lakes.
