Resource Stewards - Continuing a Tradition of Service
Action is critical to stop or amend MI Senate Bills 39 and 40. During this 'Lame Duck' portion of the legislative terms these bills continue to be a threat to ownership and management of public lands in Michigan and to the many diverse users of our public lands. Read the Call To Action notice in the Priority Topics page.

The Michigan Resource Stewards is an organization founded by natural resource and environmental professionals who spent years working or volunteering in the public and private sectors managing and protecting our natural resources and environment. The organization was formed in 1997 to continue the fight for protection of our environment and natural resources by the same people who had dedicated their working lives to this noble objective.
Since its inception the Michigan Resource Stewards has earned a strong reputation as an organization that uses sound science in arriving at positions on a wide variety of conservation and environmental issues. Individual members have testified before various commissions, boards and legislative committees, and serve on a variety of work groups to share the expertise and experience they have accumulated over decades of hands-on involvement. The Stewards strongly oppose at every turn the politicization of resource management, or decisions based on unscientific principles, and are a respected and outspoken voice on behalf of the long-term use and conservation of Michigan's natural resources.
The Resource Stewards is an active member of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs. The Stewards bring an immeasurable amount of hands-on professional experience and credibility in all aspects of conservation and environmental protection, in both the public and private sectors.
