From Bold Beginnings
Under the visionary leadership of Bertha Daubendiek, what started six decades ago as a small bird study group became a statewide land conservation organization. From that bold beginning, MNA members, donors and volunteers built a remarkable statewide network of more than 170 nature sanctuaries across Michigan.
Saving our Natural Treasures
Michigan is blessed with extraordinary natural beauty. Surrounded by such beauty, it is easy to overlook what is being lost as landscapes around us change and habitat is fragmented.
MNA is dedicated to permanently protecting land that provides critical habitat for rare, threatened and endangered species and natural communities.
