Earth Day Gathering

In honor of Earth Day, Monday, the Friends of the St. Clair River held an International celebration. Under the shadow of the Blue Water Bridge, Canadians met in Point Edward and stateside, Americas met at the International Flag Plaza in Port Huron. With the celebration of Earth Day by billions across the world, the two groups decided to make a human-chain that promotes creating awareness among people about the vulnerability and status of the Earth’s water resources. The family-friendly event lasted 22-minutes and had a brief discussion about Earth Day and water. A friendly wave was shared by both groups from both sides of the bridge to show that the communities are united with passion and concern for the St. Clair River and its watersheds.
