89.1 WEMU

Michigan League of Conservation Voters

  On the first Friday of every month, WEMU sets aside 20-minutes to thoroughly discuss an issue of environmental importance.  WEMU's David Fair and Michigan League of Conservation Voters Executive Director co-host the segment, and this week the guest is Ann Arbor's own Lana Pollack. Lana has served as State Senator, President of the Michigan environmental Council and is currently the U-S Chair of the International Joint Commission, as appointed by President Barack Obama.

The Obama administration wants to continue funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative at its current level of $300 million, but is it enough?  This month's First Friday Focus on the Environment from WEMU examines how the initiative has helped the Great Lakes.  Our guest is the Executive Director of the National Wildlife Federation's Great Lakes Regional Center, Andy Buchsbaum.

This month marks the one-year anniversary of  "River Up!"  It's a community movement to embrace and celebrate the assets of the Huron River for the benefit of local economies and residents. In this installment of  1st Friday,  WEMU's David Fair, Michigan League of Conservation Voters Executive Director Lisa Wozniak and Huron River Watershed Council Deputy Director Elizabeth Riggs, discuss "River Up!"
