A Human-Water Chain Event Marks Earth Day

Friends of the St. Clair River is organizing a Human-Water Chain event to celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 22 at 6:45 p.m. Participants should meet under the arch at the north entrance of the Blue Water River Walk in Port Huron. This Human-Chain formation event is centered on creating awareness among people about the plight of our world’s water resources. Earth Day is observed across the world by billions of people each year on April 22.  The event will begin with a brief discussion about Earth Day and then participants will link arms for a few minutes to demonstrate the connectivity of all humans by the substance of life – water. Kirsten Lyons, Stewardship Director for Friends of the St. Clair River said, “Human chains started as a way to demonstrate solidarity about an issue. This community is united by our passion and concern for our river and its watershed. On Earth Day this year, we’ll acknowledge our shared commitment to restoring and keeping the Blue Water Area a wonderful place to live, work and play.”  Pre-registration is not required.
