Water, environment & sustainability

Offering solutions for managing our region’s water and natural assets

Our natural assets include Lake Michigan and a vast network of rivers. These, and other treasures, need to be managed and protected for the benefit of future generations.

That’s why MPC educates elected officials, engages the public, champions conservation and safety, and delivers bold visions for the future of our region. Because our community is too good to waste.
