GBTU Monthly Chapter Meeting


Jeff Reinke is pleased to announce that we will be resuming our monthly chapter meetings starting in February! Our first speaker will be Dick Dragiewicz, who heads up efforts to protect the Menomonie River and the waters that supply the river and Lake Michigan from the impact of mining by a foriegn company. Dick has this overview to offer:
Menominee River Presentation by Dick Dragiewicz
At GBTU meetings and other activities you’ve probably heard me talk about the terrific smallmouth bass fishing that the Menominee River offers. These ambitious bass, that we like to catch and release, are being threatened by a
proposed open pit and underground metallic sulfide mine that a foreign company wants to build right next to the river.
Mining may be necessary to obtain the metallic minerals we use. But there are other considerations that need to be addressed before the State of Michigan allows this proposed mine to be developed. Area residents drink the water from the river and underground aquifers that feed into it. They will be polluted by this proposed project. The river drains into Lake Michigan so it will also receive polluted water.
Join us at GBTU’s inaugural virtual meeting on February 11, 2021 to learn more about the Menominee River’s bassfishing and what you can do to help protect it from the proposed metallic sulfide mine.
Time: Feb 11, 2021 07:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
