A great way for congregations throughout Wisconsin to participate in a common creation care advocacy effort is to join local community water cleanups.
Congregations don’t have to recreate the wheel – cleanup campaigns and events are ongoing throughout the state. See:
Adopt-a-Beach: Alliance for the Great Lakes https://greatlakes.org/
Adopt a River: https://milwaukeeriverkeeper.org/restore/adopt-a-river/
Adopt a Shoreline: http://lakewausau.org/page/volunteers
Find a watershed protection group near you.
We want to hear about your congregation’s involvement with community water cleanups. Email Kelley Greene to share your story.
