Great Lakes Community Meeting



Rochester, MI – The Great Lakes hold one fifth of the world’s fresh water supply and currently provide drinking water to over 42 million people.  Yet each day, our Lakes are damaged economically and ecologically by untreated sewage, toxic pollution, and invasive species.  Unless we invest in a solution today, the price we will pay tomorrow will be much higher and future generations may never experience the Great Lakes as we know them.


Fortunately there is a solution – the residents of Michigan!  At the upcoming Great Lakes Community Meeting in Rochester, Melissa Damaschke, Michigan Great Lakes Organizer for Sierra Club, will provide information on the following:

  • Sierra Club’s Great Lakes Campaign in Michigan
  • Threats to the Great Lakes and solutions to those threats, and
  • Actions Michigan residents can do to PROTECT the Great Lakes.

WHO:           Melissa Damaschke, Sierra Club Organizer
