Water Protection

Activities that release contaminants on land or in the air are reflected in water quality. Michigan is home to 20% of the world’s available fresh water. Defending this resource is among the highest priorities of Michigan environmentalists and the MidMichigan Environmental ActionCouncil.

“Blue spaces” are identified in studies as having calming effects, more so even than “green spaces.”

Red Cedar Awareness. MidMEAC is working with the City of East Lansing, Ingham County Conservation District, MSU students and advisors, Rivertown Adventures, and other citizens interested in protecting water resources. We are partnering to raise awareness about the unique and historic aspects of the Red Cedar River and its meaning in our community.

Red Cedar & the Montgomery Drain. MidMEAC is pleased to be working as an educational partner with the Ingham County Drain Commissioner’s Office on a project that will transform Lansing’s Ranney Park and Red Cedar Park into a living classroom for environmental science. The project will prevent many tons of pollutants, 50-75-thousand pounds, from being released into the Red Cedar River. Video
