The Michigan Chapter’s conservation priorities focus on the legacy that every child should inherit—water you can drink, air you can breathe, lakes safe for swimming, and communities free from poisonous waste; clean and healthy energy from local renewable sources that grow our economy and reduce dependence on dirty fossil fuels; wild places that provide clean rivers, wildlife habitat, and opportunities to fish, hunt, hike, and learn about the natural world; and active participation in a democracy that ensures our elected officials fairly represent their voters, not special interests.
