Save The River, a member-based, nonprofit environmental organization, has been the “voice for the St. Lawrence River” in the U.S. and Canada since 1978. Save The River’s mission has always been to restore, preserve and protect the ecological integrity of the Upper St. Lawrence River through advocacy, education and research. In 2004, Save The River was designated the Upper St. Lawrence Riverkeeper and became a member of the International Waterkeeper Alliance with the goal of a swimmable, fishable, drinkable river.

Through four allied programs, GLOW will galvanize, inspire, and motivate residents of the Great Lakes Basin to strengthen, support and steward the Great Lakes to a beautiful and healthy future. With this shared identity and commitment, the Great Lakes can be sustained and improved. With the extra challenge of climate change—fires, floods, and weather extremes—building a committed, connected community dedicated to the Great Lakes is more important than ever.
These programs are:
- The Great Lakes Odyssey Radio Hour explores lakes-focused science, arts and culture in the entire Great Lakes Basin, creating a lively music-centered magazine style broadcast.
- The Great Lakes Library Collaborative shares programming with leading scientists, thinkers, and activists in conversation with local communities and fosters the cross-basin Great Lakes, Great Read.
- Great Lake Odyssey Future creates experiential learning for young adults in which they will work with indigenous elders and artists to envision vital and beautiful lakes in 2072.
- Great Lakes Odyssey Festivals bring local communities into direct contact with musicians, artists, historians, scientists, and others to explore and celebrate Great Lakes culture and environment.
The Great Lakes Odyssey Radio Hour is at the core of this interdisciplinary initiative. Theme-based episodes celebrate the region’s diverse heritage, while fostering connections across silos to address the watershed’s ecological challenges.
The Radio Hour debuted September 2022 in a collaboration with Central Michigan University’s NPR affiliate, WCMU-FM. We have since expanded our listener base by joining the WBFO-FM, Buffalo/Toronto Public Media network. Toledo WGTE-FM Public Media began broadcasting in October 2023.
