We Are All Connected
We are people whose hearts have been captivated by our state’s lands and waters, and our history has been shaped and dominated by them. The Great Lakes that surround us help to shape our identities as Michiganders. We belong to a state that provides breathtaking beauty, working lands that sustain us, and a rich culture defined by our relationship with the land and water.
Together, we are responsible for the future of Michigan and the Great Lakes. Understanding the deep interconnection between the natural world, our economy, our culture and our future in Michigan will help us leave a legacy for our children and their grandchildren. Stay connected with The Nature Conservancy’s work in Michigan by signing up for Great Places, our free e-newsletter.
