E-M:/ THURSDAY in Royal Oak - Clean Water Action & Sierra Club Movie Night!

This Thursday, July 12th at 6:30pm at the Royal Oak Public Library (222 East Eleven Mile Road, Royal Oak) join Clean Water Action and Sierra Club for a free viewing of Unsalted.  This summer Sierra Club and Clean Water Action are hosting a series of movie nights that educate moviegoers about Michigan’s waters.  Unsalted is a documentary that focuses on people enjoying the Great Lakes by riding some of the coldest waves.

Sierra Club and Clean Water Action believe that all citizens have a right to enjoy Michigan’s water.  However, Michigan’s water resources are at risk every day of being diverted out of the Great Lakes and from pollution created by sewage overflows, pesticide and fertilizer use and agricultural waste.  During each movie night, participants will learn more about the threats to these majestic waters as well as solutions to overcome these threats.  

No surfboards required for admission.

For more information please contact Lynna at (248) 336-3460 or lkaucheck@cleanwater.org

I look forward to sharing popcorn with you soon!
