detroitdogrescue. Blair’s life mattered so incredibly much. Like every foster, volunteer

Blair’s life mattered so incredibly much. Like every foster, volunteer and friend, he was DDR family. I fix things. It’s what I do, but there are some things I can’t fix and some things I can’t even express well. Last week our volunteer Karen lost her son, Blair. A whole crew of volunteers and staff here lost their friend. Blair was also a foster for #DetroitDogRescue and he loved Domino, one of our sweet rescues who needs surgery to fix his legs. Blair wanted more than anything for Domino to receive his surgery, so in Blair’s honor his mother posted this sweet sentiment today. “This past week I have lived every mother’s worst nightmare. My sweet son, Blair, ended his life after battling depression for many years. Blair had many passions, two of which were improving the health of our waterways and the work of Detroit Dog Rescue. This summer, Blair fostered Domino from DDR. Domi needs surgery and Blair’s plan was to see him through that. If you wish to honor Blair’s memory, please consider donating to DDR on this Giving Tuesday. All funds raised will be used for Domino’s surgery and care. Thank you for your kind words, prayers and support. Peace to you all. #givingtuesday #detroitdogrescue #allianceforthegreatlakes #lakestclaircleanup #depression” Blair did not give up when he chose to end his life due to pain and depression and it’s important to myself and the entire DDR crew that all of his fighting, his efforts and his strength be remembered. Domino’s surgery will be covered, but we also want to do something to thank Blair. We want to raise $10,000 for the new Detroit Dog Rescue center slated to begin construction soon and name one of the adoption rooms after Blair. In his memory, dogs will find their homes, find their place, find their peace, thanks to Blair’s strength. I know it’s late in the day, but as a mother, as a leader, I just couldn’t find the right words to express this, but receiving Karen’s thanks was everything I needed to hear. So, this #GivingTuesday, let’s remember Blair. You can donate to Blair’s Adoption Area by going to DetroitDogRescue.com Thank you, Kristina Rinaldi Executive Director

A fun DIY project for urban beachcombers...who want to "use" all their finds. :) The materials provide an interesting snapshot of a single downtown beach: "porcelain" or "brick" pieces, pop can tabs, bottlecaps, buttons, green and brown beach glass, plastic/iron "sticks"...pebbles. While it is a bit sad to see so many unnatural things, I much enjoyed the process of finding the objects, and giving them a "third life." As always, they have a strange and sweet beauty to them. 😌 #beachbricks #allianceforthegreatlakes

Here are some pics from our September Beach Cleanup. At first glance, you’d think it was a fairly clean beach, yet everyone worked hard and we managed to amass quite a pile of trash that will no longer have a chance at wreaking havoc on the environment. And yes, that’s the basket of a shopping cart. 😯 ~ Thanks to everyone who came out today and spent a few hours cleaning Headlands Beach State Park as part of International Coastal Cleanup Day with @alliance4greatlakes, and to @meijerstores for joining us as well. We have the best volunteers! 💚🌎🌊🏴‍☠️ . . . . #defendconserveprotect #seashepherdcleveland #ssc #onshorevolunteers #osvs #seashepherdcle #sscs #protectourgreatlake #mentorheadlands #headlandsbeach #allianceforthegreatlakes #afgl #fortheoceans #lovelakeerie #plasticpollution #internationalcoastalcleanup

Not long

Volunteered some time today to pick up trash at the beach! . Not long ago I was riding the train home and noticed how much litter was, well... pretty much everywhere. Pissed me off honestly. I’ve been meaning to do something about it, and even though helping out today doesn’t solve the issue, it’s at least better than doing nothing. . What I found most: cigarette butts. Followed by water bottle caps and random pieces of plastic in general. And sadly, quite a few butterflies?! Guess it’s easy for them to get caught in the wind and stuck in the sand. Poor little guys. They’re really beautiful. . Don’t take where we live for granted. Pick up your shit. #beachcleanup #volunteer #dosomething #saveourenvironment #dunepark #allianceforthegreatlakes

today we spent the morning cleaning up the beach! you may not realize how polluted our Great Lakes are but each year there are 22 MILLION POUNDS of plastic dumped into the Great Lakes. These tiny microplastics are hard to see but are a huge contributor to this issue. ••• today we picked up 59 lbs of trash from the Grand Haven beach!!! every little thing helps, I encourage everyone to go spend a little time at the beach & clean! ••• Please share & spread the word, let’s save our Great Lakes!! #makingwaves #allianceforthegreatlakes #adoptabeach #adoptabeachday

On 9/20 and beyond, let’s call for investigation into where the trash in Lake Michigan is coming from? This is household trash south of Oval Beach (Saugatuck). This and thousands of pieces of plastic refuse are covering our beaches up and down the coast- who’s dumping “recycling” in our Lake? In Grand Haven this summer, after a storm, I couldn’t sit on my towel and chill, I walked up and down picking plastic out of the sand...heartfelt thanks to the family vacationing on the beach who saw what I was doing and showed me a pile of plastic THEY had gathered and we dumped it in my little grocery bag. Call for clean up but where’s the perp!? In Pickerel, aside from@the usual post 4th fireworks trash, little bits of pladtic washing up every day...where’s the rest of it coming from? #bridgemagazine, #michiganradio, #allianceforthegreatlakes, #tipofthemittwatershed, anybody else??

This is the endangered Mitchell’s Satyr butterfly. Michigan is one of the only places in the world that you can still find it. The Mitchell's Satyr is restricted to rare wetlands called fens which are low nutrient systems that receive carbonate-rich ground water from seeps and springs. The delicate balance of life in these ecosystems is under threat by agricultural development, pollutants, and invasive species. Keeping our wetlands healthy is crucial to ensuring proper biodiversity and also ensuring that we get to admire these awesome little dudes for generations to come. #michigan #art #wildlife #conservation #endangeredspecies #digitalart #illustration #allianceforthegreatlakes

We had another successful beach cleanup yesterday. Forty volunteers joined @seashepherdcle and worked for three hours cleaning Wendy Park Beach. While we removed only 62 pounds of garbage from Wendy Park Beach, it consisted of some of the worst culprits. As you can see, our volunteers collected thousands of pieces of styrofoam and single-use plastics like straws, bottles, and plastic bags. Wendy Park seems to be one of the most neglected beaches in the Cleveland Metroparks, and is always overrun with thousands and thousands of smaller particles. In April, we gathered around 400 pounds from this beach. A huge “thank you” to each and every one of our awesome volunteers! Your efforts help make a difference for both our Great Lake and the oceans beyond our shores. We love our volunteers! . . . . . #seashepherdcleveland #ssc #onshorevolunteers #osvs #seashepherdcle #sscs #protectourgreatlake #thisiscle #allianceforthegreatlakes #fortheoceans #lovelakeerie #plasticpollution #bansingleuseplastic
