The Line 5 pipeline poses too great of a risk to our Great Lakes. Join organizers for the 4th annual event - a day of festivities to learn about the threat to our waters, and celebrate the dedication of those working to be on the right side of history.
A flotilla is a large group of kayaks/kayaktivists protesting on the water for a cause, or calling for an ACTION. If this pipeline breaks, it will devastate the Pristine Waters of Lake Michigan for centuries.
