With offices in Chicago and Grand Haven, Michigan, and formed in 1970, the Lake Michigan Federation is the oldest citizens’ Great Lakes organization in North America. Its mission is to restore fish and wildlife habitat, conserve land and water, and eliminate pollution in the watershed of the largest lake within the United States. We achieve this through education, research, law, science, economics, and strategic partnerships. Join us at www.lakemichigan.org.
