Time is Running Out on this Season’s Research!

August 11th, 2014 | Posted by Lee

Dr. Mason Needs You to Contribute Now to Replace Equipment Essential to the Effort to Ban Microplastics

Progress to-Date

Earlier we alerted you to the fact that microplastics researcher Dr. Sherri Mason has had an equipment loss that cripples her ability to conduct much needed research into the extent and impact of microplastics in the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River. Save The River and other organizations are using her research to secure a ban of these polluting particles. See that post here.

Many of you have responded already and we are about 50% of the way to the $3,500 it will cost to replace the lost manta trawl.

Understanding the extent and impact of microplastic pollution and enacting effective bans requires scientific research, and diligent, focused advocacy based on that research. Every contribution gets us closer to replacing Dr. Mason’s manta trawl, gets her closer to being back on the water before the end of our very short boating season and gets us closer to banning microplastics from our Lakes and River.

The makers of the products that use these tiny, toxin accumulating particles want you to do nothing. But we know, as a Save The River follower, you understand the need and will make a contribution today.

Click here to make your contribution.

You can also contribute at our Indiegogo site by clicking here.

Thank you for your help in keeping this important research afloat and keeping the equally import effort to ban microplastics alive.

The Non-Gala is Over, but We Can All Still Celebrate the River!

October 24th, 2013 | Posted by Lee

Just a few final thoughts from this year’s non-gala participants.

leaf-art-thumbI will ‘revisit’ all the poems that I’ve written about the River – the collection I hope to publish someday! (and my husband will join me with a couple glasses of wine!)

Leah Farrell

leaf-art-thumbMy family ‘Loves the River’ and enjoy and take care of it.

My husband and I love to travel but our favorite vacation is our week in the summer on our 23 foot SeaRay anchored out among the 1000 Islands! No place better!

Cary & Jacqueline Derrigo

leaf-art-thumbWe haven’t been to the River in two years, but are able to enjoy our cottage in October. We will celebrate early as we watch the River from our porch that allows us to see miles up the River.

Keep up the great work! We had a wonderful two week family reunion in August.

Ed B.

It was a wonderful evening. Quiet, calm and perfect for reflection whether you were on, near or miles away from the St. Lawrence. Its power and magic binds us all together – and it always will.
We’ll do it again next year, look for the invite and join us with your reflections.
