"The Great Lakes region is especially important because of the vast fresh water supply that it provides. As Lake Michigan’s neighbor, we have an increased responsibility to be mindful of our actions and how they affect our environment and water. It’s crucial that being good citizens of the land is taught within the family and brought to children at a young age. It’s important to teach kids the importance of being environmental responsibility." Ryan Ogburn, mandolin
