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.
Wanted: NW Ohio Citizens To Train as Water Sentinels
July 7th, 2014
Are you the kind of person that just can’t get enough time on the water?
Then, you are just the person we are looking for to help monitor NW Ohio’s rivers and streams. The Water Sentinel Program requires a few hours of training with Sierra Club staff and a couple hours of your time with the water courses you love, four times a year. We have sites already in mind if you want to be assigned to a place or you can pick your own favorite spot.
The Clean Water Campaign will provide easy-to-use water kits to all participants and staff will help you along the way until you are comfortable in your new water stewardship shoes.
Give your time to help make a difference in assuring the water running through your backyards, your parks, and your communities is healthy.
Sierra Club staff are hoping to train at least 15 volunteers in July to get this program off to a great summer. If you are interested, please contact Ann Keefe at 419-619-4436 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
