League of Women Voters to discuss Lake Michigan

Published 8:13 am Monday, May 18, 2015

Lake Michigan’s clean and abundant water is a vital resource for millions of people including, of course, those of us who live in Southwest Michigan.

At noon, on Thursday, May 28, the League of Women Voters of Berrien and Cass counties and Fernwood Botanical Garden are co-sponsoring a presentation by a panel from the League of Women Voters of the Lake Michigan Region on protecting and preserving our lake: “Saving Lake Michigan: Lake Michigan Issues.”

The presenters will be Cheryl Chapman, Jeanette Neagu and Krista Grimm.

They will discuss specific threats to the lake, what is being done about them and by whom, legislative action at the state and national levels and the organizations working to protect the Great Lakes and Lake Michigan.

A buffet lunch will be served at noon and reservations are required no later than Saturday, May 23. Call Fernwood at (269) 695-6491 Tuesday through Sunday or go to the League’s website lwvbcc.org, calendar page, for the PayPal link for reservations and payment.

The cost of the lunch and program is $14 and the public is invited and encouraged to attend.
