What is sustainability? What is our responsibility to our natural waters? How is restoration different from reclamation? These are questions that are extensively explored in the book "Braiding Sweetgrass" by Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer. For a limited time, until June 11, a talk by Dr. Kimmerer will be available for viewing on the Wege Foundation's webpage: https://wegespeakerseries.com/ it's a great introduction to Dr. Kimmerer's book, which is highly-recommended environmental reading. In this talk, she is speaking generally about her work but also specifically about work now ongoing to restore the Grand River in Michigan. Read more here.
