Earth Day and the Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup Initiative for Rotary

The Great Lakes are on of the world's largest surface freshwater ecosystem, containing 84% of North America's surface fresh water and about 21% of the world's supply of surface fresh water.  The Great Lakes Watershed cleanup is an event put forth by Rotary districts surrounding the Great Lakes, in Canada and the United States, that have created an initiative to clean our Great Lakes watershed in conjunction with Earth Day. This initiative is in Rotary’s new area of focus, “Support Our Environment.” All Rotary districts on any of the five Great Lakes will be participating on April 24, 2021; This is the first Saturday following 2021 Earth Day.  

Our Rotary Club of Superior participated in cleanup on Wisconsin Point, along with the Friends of the Lake Superior Reserve (FOLSR), who  have adopted Wisconsin Point.  We Initially gathered at Lot 1 for sign in, and then deployed to Lots 3 through 5, including the inlet area.  We collectively organized our cleanup efforts by engaging other Rotary  groups as well:  Superior High School Interact Club, Duluth Superior Rotaract Club and the Duluth Superior Eco Rotary Club.  There were numerous friends and family as well.  We had at least 26 in the Rotary group and about that many non-Rotarians with the FOLSR group.  Collectively we picked up 528 pounds of trash!!  Definitely making an impact for this new Rotary initiative.

ROTARY ADOPTS A TRAIL
 
The Rotary Club of Superior has adopted the portion of the Osaugie Trail that runs from the Rotary Pavilion to Loon's Foot Landing. Members of the Club and the Interact Club from the Superior High School joined forces on Saturday October 10 for the first of many clean up days. The turn out of enthusiastic workers was impressive. Thanks go to Dan Blank and Linda Cadotte for organizing the trail adoption and to Robyn Lings who provided a delicious lunch for the volunteers. 
ROTARY PAVILION REPAIRS
 
The Rotary pavilion along E 2nd Street in Superior needs some loving care. It is showing rust spots on the pillars that need to be sanded and painted. Shown are some of the folks that have assessed the damage so a work crew of volunteers can begin the project.  Sherman Fitch (Rotary partner of member Cheri Fitch), Tom Wondolkowski, Megan Meyer, Charlie Johnson, Marquise Slay and Dan Blank.
