With school out and summer on its way, it’s the perfect time to connect with local  eco-organizations who are looking for enthusiastic volunteers. One such group is the Alliance for the Great Lakes, who is dedicated to protecting the fragile eco-system of our beloved Lake Michigan and beyond.

Thursday July 9th, the Alliance for the Great Lakes is hosting their annual sailing event.  This is a great way to spend a weekday while learning about the organization’s commitment to preserving the Great Lakes system.  Visit their website to register for the event,  and learn more about what they’re doing to save the lakes, and how you can help.
