Join the Friends of the St. Joe River for dinner and social time at the 6th Annual St. Joseph River Watershed Council Meeting at the Sturges-Young Auditorium in Sturgis, Michigan.

The water is alive; we feed it and it feeds us. We grow food with it and we eat fish from it. We swim in it and we paddle on it. As individuals and organizations, we are working to protect and restore the land and water that flows to the St. Joseph River. Andy Jackson and other Potawatomi Grandmothers will sing, drum and share stories that help us understand Ezh gda bamendamen nibi - the way which we should all mind the water when they present:

"Living Water: Teachings of the Water Walkers"

Potawatomi women are recognized as life givers and protectors of water. In order to raise awareness about the importance of clean water, Andy Jackson and other Potawatomi Grandmothers started an annual "Water Walk". The event fosters respect and appreciation for the water that is too often taken for granted. Together we will celebrate clean water at the 6th Annual Meeting of the St. Joseph River Watershed Council.
