“The Great Lakes are a central part of my life – from the business I own, to my family’s health and well-being, and my love of surfing – our livelihood depends on this region’s incredible resources. Without clean water and a thriving ecosystem, our personal lives, businesses, and communities would suffer serious consequences. Protecting our region’s most precious asset, the Great Lakes, should be at the top of everyone’s priority list.” – Ryan Gerard, owner, Third Coast Surf Shop
