Sierra Club teamed up with the Detroit Branch of the NAACP to host an Earth Day bike tour of green water infrastructure examples in Detroit.  The bike ride began with U.S. Representative Hansen Clarke and Simone Lightfoot from the NAACP addressing over thirty participants about the importance of restoring and protecting our Great Lakes while also working to secure jobs for our community.  Sierra Club’s Southeast Michigan Group Outings Leaders Cindy Gunnip and Douglas Christie led the bike ride while Great Lakes Program Organizer Melissa Damaschke narrated the tour.  It was a bit windy but a lot of fun!


When’s the next bike tour?  Sierra Club's Outings Program and Great Lakes Program are partnering to host the same 12-mile bike ride on Saturday, May 12 at 1pm.  Sign up here.
