8 Ways you can Get involved today

Across the Great Lakes State, folks like you are doing more than ever before to protect our state’s natural resources. We have regional coordinators in southeast, west, and northern Michigan as well as a growing statewide membership of more than 50,000 citizens.

Whether you are most concerned about protecting your clean air, safe drinking water, or the natural spaces you love, you can make a difference by joining the team right here in Michigan. It takes people like you to get organized and get active to make progress!

1. Take action online

Urge YOUR State Rep. to oppose the “Drain the Streams” bill

Tell MI House: Polluters do not belong in charge of protections

Urge Gov. Snyder to protect state parks by protecting our Trust Fund

2. Donate

It will take all of us working together to hold the line for our natural resources in the fights ahead. Our nation is poised to turn back toward dirty energy, clean drinking water can no longer be taken for granted in our communities, and our parks and public lands are on the chopping block.

Backing down is out of the question, but we need your support for these fights if we’re going to win. Please take a moment to stand up for your family, your Great Lakes, and the Michigan you know and love.

Please consider making your contribution monthly. We are facing unprecedented challenges and receiving monthly support makes a big difference.

3. Get breaking alerts

Email Alerts

Getting emails is one of the easiest ways to stay on top of the latest news and opportunities to take action to protect Michigan’s clean water, clean air, and precious natural areas.

Mobile Alerts

We are excited to open our mobile alert program for sign ups at this time! While still under development, our mobile alert program gives members who opt in access to opportunities for advocacy in the format that is easiest for them!

4. Get social with us

5. Connect with your neighbors

We have regional coordinators in southeast, west, and northern Michigan. Our awesome team loves getting to know activists like you and are here to help you plug into the fight for our communities and our natural resources!

Even if you’re not in one of our core regions, reach out and we’ll be happy to help you get involved locally! While we don’t have coordinators in every corner of the state yet, we have a statewide membership and volunteer teams are already active in communities around Michigan!
