For decades, The Nature Conservancy in Michigan has worked with the people of this Great Lakes state to protect the rivers, lakes and lands that are its natural heritage. 

Learn how The Nature Conservancy partners with local land trusts, Indigenous communities, private sector businesses and donors to work at a landscape scale to conserve resilient and connected lands that will preserve biodiversity and help to mitigate impacts of climate change. 

From restoring native fish habitats and addressing aquatic invasive species to protecting iconic forests in the Upper Peninsula, attendees will discover how The Nature Conservancy is building a future where both people and nature can thrive.   

The event includes a presentation by Rich Bowman, director of policy, followed by an open discussion.
