Title:
DEQ and Travel Michigan

Abstract:
A joint effort by the Department of Environmental Quality and Travel Michigan is making it easier for tourists to "think green" while traveling in our state. Michigan's travel information Web site, www.michigan.org, now labels Michigan Clean Marinas and golf courses certified through the Michigan Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program with these designations, making it easy for visitors to know where these voluntary stewardship programs are being implemented. Certified Clean Marinas operate and maintain their facilities in ways designed to protect water quality and natural resources while enhancing the overall boating experience. Besides providing technical guidance and expertise to participating marinas, the Clean Marinas program acts as an information conduit to more than one million Michigan boaters. Golf courses in the Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program implement measures to prevent pollution, protect water resources, enhance wildlife habitat, and reduce energy use.
