Description

We are all connected: We are people whose hearts have been captivated by our state's forest, water, and shoreline, and our history has been shaped and dominated by them. We belong to a state that provides breathtaking beauty, working lands that sustain us, and a rich culture defined by our relationship with the land and water. The Nature Conservancy in Michigan is committed to working with partners who share common conservation vision and values.
We have to, as our collective responsibility to achieve the protection of our natural legacy is profound. We cannot achieve this conservation vision alone-partners, communities, community leaders and other organizations will be essential.
For many landscapes identified as conservation priorities, our partners are better positioned to carry conservation forward, and our best role may be to ensure that they have our support and the needed resources to take conservation action.


Company description
Together, we are responsible for Michigan's future. Together, we must protect our natural heritage, our quality of life, and ensure balance in our use of forest, water, and shoreline. Understanding the deep interconnection between the natural world, our economy, our culture, and our future in Michigan will help us leave a legacy for our children and their grandchildren. The state of Michigan is a landscape of natural wonders.
The last glacial epoch left an unparalleled legacy that defines Michigan: the Great Lakes, the largest freshwater system in the world. The glaciers reshaped the landscape to produce a stunning array of lakes, streams, and uplands, including our renowned sand dunes and spectacular shorelines. Today, Michigan is covered by lakes, forests, wetlands, rivers, and grasslands as diverse and majestic as old-growth forests, jack-pine plains, kettle-lakes, groundwater-fed streams, peatlands, and stunted ridge-top forests reminiscent of alpine timberlines.
In the last three years, The Nature Conservancy in Michigan has catapulted conservation action. Recent success stories include: Established the largest public/private conservation partnership in Michigan's history in an initiative to protect 271, 000 acres of forestland in the Upper Peninsula through working forest easement and acquisition. Enrolled the 2, 217 acre Erie Marsh Preserve into the Detroit River Wildlife Refuge thereby doubling the Refuge in size.
