Environment Michigan is a statewide, citizen-based environmental advocacy organization. We believe there’s something special about Michigan — something worth protecting and preserving for future generations. Whether it’s swimming along the shores of Lake Michigan, canoeing down the Kalamazoo River, or listening to the rustle of leaves as you walk through your local forest, Michigan’s natural wonders enrich our lives in countless ways.
Yet the places we love and the environmental values we share are too often threatened by powerful industries, short-sighted politicians and more. Defending our environment requires independent research, tough-minded advocacy and spirited grassroots action. That’s the idea behind Environment Michigan. Together with thousands of supporters from all walks of life, we take the kind of action that wins tangible results for our environment.
