We abuse land because we see it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. -Aldo Leopold

Line 5 Retirement Party!

Don't miss the gathering at the Opera House on Monday, April 23 and help us push Enbridge to Retire Line 5.  Pipelines, young or old, do not belong in the waters of the Straits of Mackinac.  Humans and all other living things need water much more than the oil carried by this pipeline. Come hear the music of Seth Bernard and share the enthusiasm of all the people. Learn what we can each do to influence the removal of Line 5!
