Welcome to Michigan
To learn about the innovative strategies our conservation staff are developing and the priority places where they are being put into action, visit How We Work. Below are stories about individual conservation projects designed to protect and transform, and the people who inspire our work.
We all use wood, paper and products made from trees, but we love our forests and need them to stay healthy and abundant. Sustainable forestry and certification programs can help foresters maximize their long-term economic potential while protecting the ecological integrity and diversity of our northern forests.
From reconnecting broken waterways for fish to building the forests of tomorrow, Conservancy staff are producing extraordinary results. Read our 2016 Conservation Results Report, hot off the digital press!
