Want to help the Great Lakes? Read thisTuesday, July 24, 2012 by: SooToday.com Staff
Another way to help protect the Great Lakes is now available.
The Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund provides grants to community groups for activities such as cleaning up beaches or shorelines (example of debris shown), restoring wetlands or creating a coastal or riverside trail, a provincial government news release advises.
The program makes available up to $25,000 per project for local actions to protect the Lakes and streams that flow into them.
Not-for-profit groups such as service clubs, environmental groups and scout troops are eligible.
Applications for the first round of funding will be accepted until October 12, 2012.

Yep, I was driving behind a truck today as they opened a pack of smokes and threw their wrappers out the window. I honked and he gave me the finger. What a class act !!

Want to help the Great Lakes.. I doubt all this "bacteria", mutated fish & public health advisories are being caused by a handful of weekend warriors on the beach.
25 thousand to pick up litter is a well intended first step.. but I think we should be diving a little deeper into who's creating that mysterious toxic foam swirly stuff that's floating around out there.
