Learn about the issues facing our state and how Michiganders like you are making an impact.

The quality of our natural resources directly impacts the health and wellness of our families, our communities and our natural areas. And, unfortunately, those resources are facing some serious challenges here in Michigan.

From contaminated drinking water and out of control air pollution to  attacks on our most cherished parks and natural areas, our state is no longer a leader in protecting our land, air and water. If we want our communities to be safe and clean, we cannot continue with business as usual.
