Protecting Land & Water
Michigan’s natural resources are iconic in beauty and global in significance. Our quality of life depends, in part, on maintaining a balance between open land and well-planned development, managing growth and protecting the natural environment. To that end, we support efforts to enhance, restore, protect and connect land and watersheds, regional trailways, parklands and other greenways widely enjoyed by the public.
Our grantmaking priorities include:
- Preserving and restoring significant lakes and streams
- Expanding and connecting regional trails and greenways
- Protecting critical lands including farmland, parkland, and natural habitat areas
