You Could Be the Next Freshwater Hero

You Could Be the Next Freshwater Hero

Are you inspired? Hard not to be after reading about the amazing Freshwater Heroes who are working to protect our beloved Great Lakes waters. You might be thinking…What can I do in the face of all these challenges? I’m not a biologist, or politician, or lobbyist…I don’t have expertise in policy, or science, or planning…what can I possibly do?

Rest assured, each of the Freshwater Heroes profiled in this issue and many others felt exactly the same way when they started out. Most people don’t come to the table with expertise and knowledge—they’re librarians, cooks, teachers, accountants, stay at home parents, etc… What they have in common is passion to protect the places they love!

And we bet you do too. If you’re reading this, you care. So take the next step. Find out what’s happening in your local community and reach out to community groups or other individuals who are working to protect your community’s lakes, rivers, streams and more…If you can spare a bit of time or money, you can make a difference to your local waters.

Not sure where to start? Drop us a note or give us a call and we’ll connect you with a group working hard to keep our waters in the Great Lakes region clean and healthy.
