About this grant

Michigan United Conservation Clubs, a statewide conservation group, seeks to protect and restore Michigan’s vast array of natural resources. The grantee has developed expertise in helping facilitate public engagement in state planning processes, such as the development of Michigan’s Blue Ribbon Panel on State Parks and Outdoor Recreation and the state’s public land management plan. With previous Mott support, the grantee helped coordinate citizen input into the development of Michigan’s new water strategy plan and also began a project to assess opportunities for improving statewide collaboration and public engagement on high priority water and land conservation issues. With this renewal, the grantee will focus on improving the health of rivers in Michigan. The grantee will also facilitate coalition efforts to help improve how hydroelectric facilities impact river flows.
