BENEFITING: YELLOW DOG WATERSHED PRESERVE INC

EVENT: Groupon Earth Day Challenge

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

Fresh, clean, and accessible water is becoming more and more a thing of the past as economies and societies grow. Our main goal here at the Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve is to protect our freshwater resources, as we realize that there are many who are less fortunate. The Yellow Dog River flows pure from its origins in a federal wilderness area all the way down to its end in Lake Superior, the largest body of freshwater this nation has.

Pressures to develop these areas are increasing as mineral exploration and extraction moves into the small rural communities of the Upper Peninsula. This type of mining, known as sulfide mining, has the potential to create Acid Mine Drainage, which can end up in our Great Lakes. Our group continues to work to prevent such a travesty.

We use scientific methods to collect important information about the ecosystem in order to protect it from pollution. We use this information to educate the community and decision makers about the negative effects that sulfide mining can have on waterways and the communities that depend upon them. And we do it all on a very small budget.

While we are small, we pack a mighty punch with the help of our supporters. Help us earn the top prize by donating what you can today and passing the word on to friends. All of our funds are used to support our mission, which is to preserve and protect these beautiful areas of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
