Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
“Get the Lead Out” River Clean Up attracts many youth to help
July 25th, 2014
Volunteers of all ages attended the “Get the Lead Out” River Clean Up held on July 22 on the Maumee River, hosted by Sierra Club and Partners for Clean Streams. A special thanks is extended to parents from the Zoo Teens of Toledo Zoo, Sierra Club members, and PCS who brought their children out to help. This event included an adventurous river cleaning expedition over to Blue Grass Island in the Maumee River. All waded in the river, while removing any lost fishing lines, lures, or litter in this section of river, which were all recycled.
