From the Great Lakes to the hundreds of inland lakes and streams lakes, our natural resources define life in Michigan. Passing our experiences and traditions on to our children, being good stewards of our land and lakes – these are values that that we all share. The Michigan League of Conservation Voters Education Fund is dedicated to providing you with both the information and tools you need to protect your family, community and future.
What makes us unique?
The biggest environmental and conservation decisions are made by elected officials. So one of the most important things we can do to protect our land, lakes, and way of life is to affect the outcome of those decisions. Michigan LCV Education Fund keeps you informed about pending issues and gives you the tools to make your voice heard.
A good government decision, like the recent gubernatorial and legislative decision to preserve Michigan’s wetlands program, can have long-term ramifications for citizens across the state.
Likewise, a bad government decision can wipe out years of progress with the stroke of a pen, decimating the hard work of Michigan citizens to establish strong laws pertaining to recycling, conservation, and air and water pollution
But the every-day decisions that we each make are important, too. From how you travel and what you eat, to where you swim and what’s on your ballot, Michigan LCV Education Fund helps you know the stakes for your family and Michigan’s great outdoors.
