What We Do
Water quality and the availability of good, healthy places for both wildlife and human beings is one of our priorities. By protecting natural landscapes in both rural and urban areas along rivers, streams, and headwaters, we help to provide habitat and corridors for wildlife, protect water quality and sustain the character and quality of our region. Our mission is to conserve, sustain, and connect natural areas, lands, and waters that make the places we live special. We protect the watersheds of the Belle, Clinton, Huron, Flint, Rouge, and Shiawassee Rivers and our service area covers Oakland, Macomb, Genesee, Lapeer, and St. Clair Counties. To date we have protected over 3,100 acres. Our work is essential to the quality of life and the economic vitality of the communities we serve.Our commitment to our protected lands does not end with preservation. Our stewardship program has active staff and volunteers, bringing knowledge and resources to landowners, neighbors, and our communities. Our volunteers remove invasive species, and help with erosion control projects. We share a vision of southeastern Michigan that is sustained by a vigorous economy where everyone has access to healthy land.
