The Meijer Corporation received the Corporate Conservationist of the Year award from the Michigan United Conservation Clubs at it’s annual Conservation Awards Luncheon in June.
“Meijer has not only been a generous financial partner for conservation,” said Daniel Eichinger, executive director of Michigan United Conservation Clubs, “but they have been generous with their talent as well.”
Michigan’s own Meijer family and company are extremely charitable in their protection of natural resources, funding the creation of the White Pine Trail State Park with a one million dollar gift. Meijer has also given over $300,000 worth of free junior hunting licenses away since 2008.
“Their support quite literally allows us to keep printing and publishing Tracks,” said Eichinger. Tracks Magazine is published by Michigan United Conservation Clubs and focuses on the wildlife and ecosystems of Michigan, provided to elementary schools around the state.
