E-M:/ Sierra Club free event: "Fishes of the Great Lakes: History and Hope for Restoration" on Tuesday, 10/18 in Ann Arbor

Enviro-Mich message from Doug Cowherd <dcow2@yahoo.com>

Over a century of exploitation has decimated America's
greatest freshwater fishery:  the Great Lakes. 
Efforts to restore the Great Lakes ecosystem have
scored some notable successes.  But new threats have
emerged which require new responses.  This Tuesday,
October 18, in Ann Arbor the University of Michigan's
Gerald Smith will share his insights on the history of
Great Lakes fishes and the hopes for long-term
restoration of the lakes' unique ecology.

Newcomers are welcome to this free, family-friendly
event, which begins at 7:30 pm at the beautiful
Matthaei Botanical Gardens (directions below).

After the presentation, we invite you to stay for
light refreshments and mingle with friendly people who
share your interest in nature.  You can learn about
local Sierra Club activities like hiking, skiing, and
our conservation projects.  We'll also have EarthCash
shopping vouchers available for purchase by cash or
check.  They let you help stop sprawl when you shop at
many of your favorite stores -- at no additional cost
to you.  Thanks to the hundreds of participants in
this program, we contributed $43,000 to pass
Michigan's boldest anti-sprawl initiative.  With your
help, we can do even more.

I hope to see you at Tuesday's event.  All are
welcome; no membership is required.  Please feel free
to forward this message to others who might be
