Fund for Lake Michigan
The mission of the Fund for Lake Michigan is to improve the health of Lake Michigan, its shoreline and river systems, for the benefit of the people and communities that depend on it for water, recreation and commerce.
The Fund is seeking projects that improve the water quality of Lake Michigan through habitat restoration, pollutant reduction, stream restoration, or improvements to coastal areas in Wisconsin.
Priority will be given to on‐the‐ground projects that have near‐term , direct and quantifiable impacts on
water quality in the Lake Michigan watershed, including protecting critical natural habitats and making water resources more swimmable, fishable and drinkable.
The Fund may consider applied research projects that provide information important in advancing on‐the‐ground conservation. Similarly, education might be considered as a component of outreach plans embedded in larger watershed or coastal projects.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
