Citizens for a Safe and Clean Lake Superior – $25,000

Educating and Advocating for Wetland Protections in Marquette County

Deregulation and devaluation of wetlands over the years has resulted in the destruction of about 50,000 acres of wetlands in Marquette County, 20,000 of which are in coastal areas. Citizens for a Safe and Clean Lake Superior (CSCLS) is working to raise local awareness of the causes and impacts of wetland destruction for Lake Superior and all who depend on it. Their ultimate objective is to build support for strengthening local ordinances to protect wetland areas. CSCLS will use this grant to engage a coalition of local environmental, civic, business, governmental, resident, and other stakeholders to coalesce around this cause.
