Spring showers bring summer flowers, but they also contribute to stormwater pollution which is the leading threat to the health of our waterways. There is a way you can collect the rain, reduce stormwater pollution, save on water bills, and provide healthy water for your plants and landscape. RAIN BARRELS!!!
The Sierra Club is leading a green infrastructure revolution and we have distributed over 400 rain barrels, while educating thousands of individuals in southwest Ohio. Join us this spring at a rain barrelworkshop near you by RSVPing below. Space is limited!
On Saturday January 21st through Tuesday January 24th, for the first 100 hours of Trump’s administration, join the Sierra Club and the People’s Climate Movement to oppose the Trump Administration’s aggressive attacks on our air and water, our economy, our health, our families, and our future. The goal of this action is to communicate to both public officials and corporate leaders that there is a large, powerful and national movement that will mobilize to hold them accountable to protect our planet, communities and people. We will get local and national press attention that tells the story of communities across the United States standing up and resisting Trump’s radical agenda. Organizers are encouraged to think about the best location or target that can help tell the story of how their community is standing up together to fight for the people and places that they love and/or represents the issues, communities and or programs they care about.
If you thought the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota was bad, boy do we have a doozy of one for you here in Michigan.

Yes, the Straits of Mackinac, that cherished five (5) mile wide water body that links the crystal clear, clean waters of Lake Michigan with Lake Huron.
