Traverse City–Discover the story of two Michigan adventurers and their 500-mile, fossil-fuel-free journey across the Upper Peninsula along the route of Line 5 – a 63-year-old pipeline – that threatens our inland waters and Great Lakes. Every day nearly 23 million gallons of oil flow through Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline located on the bottom of the Straits of Mackinac just west of the Mackinac Bridge. Join FLOW (For Love of Water) and Oil & Water Don’t Mix Campaign partners Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities, Michigan Environmental Council (MEC), Northern Michigan Environmental Action Council (NMEAC) and TC 350.org at the State Theatre in Downtown Traverse City for an evening of adventure and activism.
