This event is occurring just after the 12th anniversary of the Enbridge Line 6B Kalamazoo River oil spill disaster. At the Straits of Mackinac, Enbridge Line 5 poses a dire threat in what University of Michigan scientists called "the worst possible place for an oil spill in the Great Lakes."
The online session is free and supported by a grant award from the Mackinac Island Community Foundation’s Natural Resources and Preservation Fund. Straits area residents are also encouraged to attend and share their concerns and questions.
