A panel of water activists and advocates talk about how the lakes, streams and ponds in our region are “More Than Just A View,” on Sunday, July 15, 2 pm at the Glen Arbor Arts Center, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. This conversational interview will be conducted by GAAC Gallery Manager Sarah Bearup-Neal.
The “More Than Just A View” panel is: Jim Lively, of the Groundwork Center; Tom Nelson, executive Director of The Leelanau Conservancy; and environmental attorney Jim Olson, founder of For Love Of Water/FLOW. The July 15 discussion offers an opportunity to hear more about how the health and safety of Lake Michigan is endangered by the Line 5 oil pipe, the threats to underground aquafers from bottled water, and the impacts of 21 st Century lawn care on local lakes and streams.
This conversational discussion is presented as part of the GAAC’s exhibition “New Views: Water = Life = Art.” The exhibition continues through August 4 in the GAAC gallery. There is no charge. For more information go to: GlenArborArt.org
