Everyone who lives in or visits the Grand Traverse region is a beneficiary of the vitally important work that the Watershed Center does to protect the local streams, rivers, and watersheds feeding into the bay and Lake Michigan. I've signed up to complete a 2 mile swim across a portion of the West Bay and to gather donations in support of the Watershed Center as a simple way to give back and help them continue their great work as stewards of these incomparable freshwater resources. If you love the Great Lakes, or the irreplaceable waters of Leelanau/Grand Traverse/Antrim/Benzie County(ies), I hope you'll consider making a small (or big!) donation in support of this wonderful non-profit organization. THANKS!!
