Profile:

  • MUCC is the largest statewide conservation organization in the nation, with nearly 100,000 members and more than 500 affiliated clubs. For over sixty years, MUCC has worked to accomplish our mission of Uniting Citizens to Conserve Michigan's Natural Resources and Protect OUR Outdoor Heritage. MUCC works to conserve Michigan's wildlife, fisheries, waters, forests, air, and soils by providing information, education and advocacy. To build an environmentally literate citizenry, MUCC informs and educates the public on conservation issues. Michigan Out-of-Doors Multimedia educates members and the public on important conservation issues while featuring hunting, fishing, and other outdoor recreation. Michigan Out-of-Doors magazine has been the official monthly publication of MUCC since 1947. and hundreds of thousands of viewers watch Michigan Out-of-Doors Television each week. MUCC provides environmental education to conserve our natural resources now and for future generations. The Wildlife Encounters program compliments curricula with presentations on native birds of prey and wetlands. Tracks Magazine brings wildlife to upper-elementary students throughout the school year. Michigan Out-of-Doors Camp for Kids provides ecology and outdoor skills to children during the summer. Year-round learning opportunities for men and women are provided during MUCC's Weekend Courses and the Michigan Out-of-Doors Women program. Special events such as Outdoorama, and the Annual Convention also provide citizens with information and education on conservation issues. MUCC advocates for the wise and scientific management of Michigan's natural resources through public policy and litigation. The organization maintains working relationships with state and federal agencies, legislators, and other key leaders to influence the direction of natural resource issues. Our Resource Policy Department has staff experts in: Fisheries Wildlife Land Use Solid Waste Water Quality Air Quality Energy Forestry Technical assistance on natural resource laws is provided by a corporate counsel and skilled law clerks within MUCC's Legal Department. The staff allows MUCC to remain ever vigilant of Michigan's natural resources and outdoor heritage. Effective advocacy could not be achieved without the grass-roots support of our club and individual members. Members are diverse in their interest, yet all share a deep commitment to stewardship of Michigan's natural resources. MUCC gathers strength from the diversity of our affiliated outdoor clubs, which represent interests from hunting and fishing to horseback riding and bird watching.
