1st Friday Focus On The Environment: The Threat Of Oil Pipelines
Water is one of the most important natural resources in Michigan. As a Great Lakes state, perhaps it's the most important. We are also spoiled with an amazing network of inland lakes, rivers and streams that enhance our quality of life in a myriad of ways. So, protecting this resource is something we think about often.
Invasive species, pollution and water levels are some of the frequent conversations we engage in. What we discuss less frequently is vast number of oil pipelines that run through the state of Michigan near, and sometimes under our precious waterways. That's the topic in the March edition of WEMU's 1st Friday Focus on the Environment.
Michigan League Of Conservation Voters Executive Director Lisa Wozniak is host of WEMU's 1st Friday Focus on the Environment. Beth Wallace is Community Outreach Coordinator and oil pipeline expert at the National Wildlife Federation's Great Lakes Regional Center.
