  • Formerly the Lake Michigan Federation, the mission of the Alliance for the Great Lakes is to: "conserve and restore the world's largest freshwater resource using policy, education and local efforts, ensuring a healthy Great Lakes and clean water for generations of people and wildlife." The Lake Michigan Federation remains a project of the Alliance. The Alliance's programs focus on:
    • Water Quality: eliminating toxic and bacterial pollution, which cause beach closings
    • Water Conservation: promoting sustainable water use to keep the Great Lakes great
    • Habitat Recovery: restoring and enhancing habitat, especially in urban areas, and eliminating invasive species
    • Land Use: protecting lands that drain into the Great Lakes and their natural features
    • Clean Energy: protecting the Great Lakes from harmful effects of energy use
    • Education & Outreach: providing education and volunteer opportunities for adults and children to build an appreciation for the Great Lakes

    Governed by about 20 volunteers from around the region, the Alliance also coordinates a network of community-based organizations from around the region, which gather annually to craft basin-wide solutions with a local emphasis.
