Together we can help build a brighter future.

That’s what it means to leave a legacy. And a very good place to begin is helping protect the wild places where nature can still be found, before they’re lost forever. That’s why we want to thank you, for all you do to protect Michigan’s natural heritage for future generations, and for your continued support of the Michigan Nature Association.

As we close out our 70th Anniversary year, we are very excited to announce a truly remarkable opportunity that your past support has made possible.

The “Founders 4 the Future” is a multi-year campaign in honor of MNA’s founding generation to fund the protection of nearly 4,000 acres of critical habitat for rare, threatened, and endangered species.

With your generous donation in honor of MNA’s founders, your legacy will include:

  • Protecting an enormous wetlands complex, including hundreds of acres or rare patterned fen vital to the Fox River–one of Michigan’s 16 state-designated Natural Rivers;
  • Helping preserve thousands of acres around Brockway Mountain on the Keweenaw Peninsula as a wildlife corridor; and,
  • Conserving thousands of acres of the globally-important migratory bird flyway along the St. Mary’s River.
