Great Lakes and Freshwater Week
June 4 @ 8:00 am - June 12 @ 5:00 pm
Each year, Michigan proclaims this week as an opportunity to raise awareness of the Great Lakes and Michigan’s inland lakes, rivers, streams and groundwater. It’s a time to trumpet the importance of these water bodies and their immeasurable value to quality of life throughout the state. Michigan is known around the world for this unique resource, which people can help preserve in the face of climate change and other challenges.
By raising awareness, we will inspire people to protect and be champions of the Great Lakes and fresh water. Our call to action is for residents around the state to enjoy, appreciate, and safeguard this vital resource for current and future generations.
Will you paddle along a water trail or join an Adopt-a-Beach team for a local cleanup? Maybe you can collect plastics as you stroll along the shore, or clear litter from storm catch basins in your neighborhood. What will you do to be a Great Lakes Champion?
