The Superior Watershed Partnership announces Great Lakes Climate Corps
After 20 years, the Great Lakes Conservation Corps name has changed
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Today, the Superior Watershed Partnership announced the renaming of the Great Lakes Conservation Corps.
After 20 years under that name, the same group has rebranded as the Great Lakes Climate Corps.
The GLCC will continue working on several environmental projects across the Upper Peninsula.
“We feel like it better represents the mission of the Superior Watershed Partnership. And a lot of the projects we’ve been working on over the last 20 years have related to climate, but we are facing an emergency and our climate is changing in a significant way and we just want our name to reflect our mission and values.” says GLCC project manager Tyler Penrod.
Tomorrow from 9 to noon the GLCC, SWP and the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Natural Resources Department are collecting electronic waste at the Ojibwa Casino in Harvey.
This is free for Marquette and Alger County residents.
Items that will be accepted include: desktop and laptop computers, tablets, monitors, TVs, printers, fax machines, computer accessories, DVD and VCR players, cell phones, and microwaves.
For more information, contact Serene Gauthier at the KBIC Natural Resources Department at (906) 524-5757 ext 4228.
