Hey, folks -- want to give a gift that keeps on giving?  Then give a
friend/relative/neighbor/elected official etc. a membership in an
environmental organization, particularly one that has regular newsletters
published, or a subscription to publications from non-membership
organizations.  I am sitting here looking at a few of the outstanding
publications put together by organizations throughout Michigan (and sometimes
beyond).

This is NOT a complete list, and I would encourage others to suggest their own
favorites!

Chapter in MI) and local group (throughout the state) memberships, and brings
you SIERRA magazine, the MACKINAC newsletter, and in most groups a local
newsletter as well.  $35 per individual membership, $15 for students, and
$43 for joint memberships.  You can request a membership form by email or
check our web page for info, or send your check and name and address of the
gift recipient to Sierra Club, 300 N. Washington Square, Suite 411, Lansing,
