Policy and Advocacy
Michigan United Conservation Clubs is a non-profit conservation organization. Our mission is both simple and profound: Uniting Citizens to Conserve, Protect and Enhance and Natural Resources and Outdoor Heritage.
MUCC does this in a variety of ways. From youth outreach, to Michigan OutofDoors University, MUCC is on the go and on watch. But it is our Policy and Advocacy efforts that perhaps draw the most attention.
MUCC maintains a staff of dedicated conservation professionals whose job it is to defend Michigan’s outdoors heritage and natural resources every day. It is a job we truly enjoy and believe in. MUCC staff follows the policy positions that are established by MUCC members (for more on how that works, read this) and attends virtually every NRC, DNRE and legislative meeting and hearing available to ensure that MUCC members and Michigan’s great outdoors is well represented.
Our policy teams sits on a number of advisory boards and panels further engaging MUCC’s members in the discussions that matter.
