Change-Makers Boot Camp Educates Activists

Huron Watershed Council (HRWC), Michigan’s first and old­est watershed council, is a coalition of local com­munities and residents established under state law in 1965 to protect the Huron River and its tributary streams, lakes, wetlands and groundwater. A Change-Mak­ers Boot Camp, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., January 16, will teach partici­pants basic river-friendly policies that protect clean water and how to navigate their local government’s decision-making processes.

Local governments are comprised of people that care about the quality of life in our communities and anyone can get involved. Change-makers learn about the Huron River and its watershed, the impacts of development on clean water, how local governments make decisions and the many ways to connect with and influence the process.

The free workshop is open to all Huron River watershed residents. Loca­tion: Washtenaw Community College, Morris Lawrence Building, Rm. ML150, 4800 E. Huron River Dr., Ann Arbor. For more information, call Kris Olsson at 734-769-5123, ext. 607 or email Kolsson@hrwc.org.
