Blue Green Society
In 2010, the Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy created the Blue Green Society. Its members distinguish themselves by the leadership-level commitment they make to support SWMLC's mission and thereby protect our precious land and water resources. To that end, they have increased their commitment to the organization with a renewable annual gift of $1,000 or more. We are grateful for their ongoing support.

To save the blue, we must protect the green
From atop our grassy dunes, the majesty of Lake Michigan stretches farther than the eye can see. It's difficult to imagine that this fresh water vastness had been fed, drop by drop, from the myriad streams and rivers that course through southwest Michigan. Those who understand nature's oneness, however, know the Big Lake's well-being relies heavily on the lifeblood of its tributaries.
In turn, the health of natural lands is critical to cleanse and protect our inland waters. In a real sense, to save the blue, we must protect the green.
Aldo Leopold, the father of ecology, once said, "When we see the land as a community to which we belong, we will begin to treat it with love and respect." Are you, like Leopold, someone who sees this larger connection and acts generously on its behalf? We believe you are, and we invite you to become a member of the Blue Green Society.
Membership in the Blue Green Society entitles you to special events and activities and assures you the satisfaction of helping generations to enjoy the blue and green assets of southwest Michigan.
Please join with other distinguished supporters of our community and become a member of the Blue Green Society.
