July 1st & July 29th
8:45 a.m. – 1 p.m.
An Invitation to join the Northern Great Lakes Water Stewards in partnership with The Cedar Tree Institute
The Interfaith community lifted up a vision of planting 500 trees in April 2007 at a “Gift of Water” celebration at Messiah Lutheran Church in Marquette. We are working with folks in the Community Forest program, part of the Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve, to make this vision happen.
Meet us at Messiah Lutheran Church, 305 W Magnetic Street in Marquette on Saturday mornings, July 1st & July 29th at 8:45 a.m. We’ll leave for Big Bay at 9 a.m.
Each tree is planted in memory of a person who has been designated by a donor. We will be arriving back in Marquette between 12:30 and 1 p.m.
This project will go “rain or shine” so please dress accordingly. Bring a water bottle. We will provide a snack for all participants. Everyone will learn about the history of the cedar trees in the Great Lakes Basin and why we chose this project to help protect the sacred nature of our rivers and streams.
Let us know if it looks like you will be able to join us for one of these two planting events. For those able to join us, we will carpool to the site near Big Bay, about a 35-minute drive from Marquette.
Feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org text, or leave a message on my cell phone 1-231-709-3001.
Thanks for thinking of us,
