Who:   
Lake Michigan Federation works to restore fish and wildlife habitat,
conserve land and water, eliminate pollution in the watershed of America’s
largest lake.  We achieve these through education, research, law, science,
economics, and strategic partnerships.  The Federation was founded in 1970
and currently works to increase state protection of sand dunes, provide the
legal ability to safeguard Lake Michigan from water withdrawals, and
discourage drilling for oil and gas under the lake.

The Bear Creek Players was originally formed in 1997 under a grant from the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and administered by the Robert B. Annis
Water Resource Institute of Grand Valley State University.  Comprised of
both professional and university actors, the group develops
story-theater-style presentations.  The work is based on stories that have
been told through the ages that contain common wisdom found in the common
person.  The Players have performed at Water Festivals, the Meijer Gardens,
and the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum, areas schools and in Lansing for the
State Legislature.  The group is lead by Max Bush, a freelance playwright
and director whose plays are widely produced on professional, education and
amateur stages across the country.
