Earth Day Puts Spotlight on Water Issues in
Neighbors Unite to Say, “Love our Lakes, Love our Lawns”
The Sierra Club Earth Day Celebration will follow a week long effort to knock on Royal Oak, Berkley, Waterford and Rochester Hills community members’ doors to encourage them to stop using pesticides and high phosphorus fertilizers and to ask Governor Granholm to “do better,” by creating policy that protects Michigan’s lakes and the Great Lakes, a viewing of the PBS special Affluenza, and a presentation at UpDog Yoga in Rochester Hills.
The April 23rd celebration will include live entertainment, kids’ activities, workshops, demonstrations, and fun for the whole family from 10 AM – 5 PM.
