Most of us are likely looking forward to warmer temperatures, boats in the water and having winter behind us. But there is plenty to keep us busy until then - especially for those who love Lake Michigan. For something inspiring, watch the 3-minute trailer for the documentary of Julia and Alyssa’s Walk to Sustain Our Great Lakes initiative (at the end of this article). And be sure to mark your calendars for the April 15 (1 p.m.) event in which the KYC and Kenosha Community Sailing Center are partnering with the Kenosha Public Museum for a Great Lakes Educational event.
TAKE ACTION: Can you envision a time in the future when you are in the harbor or leaving the marina and have to worry about dodging Asian Carp flying through the air? Or going back to the days when water and beaches were filthy and full of toxic pollutants? The carp scenario may be far-fetched but hopefully it got your attention, and there are still significant problems in the Great Lakes that need to be addressed. And there are many benefits to a healthy Lake Michigan for sailors, power boaters, beach-goers, sport fisherman, tourism, etc.!!!!
