The Great Lakes Aquatic Habitat Network and Fund is pleased to announce that
four of twenty mini-grants were given to grassroots groups in Michigan
seeking to protect aquatic habitats.

The following groups received grants ranging from $1,000-$3,000:

Coalition for Sensible Growth	Travese City
Friends of the Crystal River	Glen Arbor
Neighborhood Wetland Monitors	Grand Rapids
Charlevoix Land Conservancy	Charlevoix

The Great Lakes Aquatic Habitat Network and Fund seeks to assist grassroots,
place-based groups working to protect aquatic habitats throughout the Great
Lakes Basin through financial and advisory assistance.  GLAHNF provides a
mini-grants program, with awards ranging from $500-$3500, publishes a
bi-monthly newsletter, and assists groups with capacity-building through
"Network Hubs" in each of the Great Lakes states.  In Michigan, this Hub
takes the form of the Michigan Wetlands Action Coalition and the Michigan
River Network.

GLAHNF is a project of the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council and is funded
through grants from the C.S. Mott Foundations and U.S. EPA.  For more

"For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important than
television, and the chance to find a pasque-flower is a right as inalienable
as free speech."  ~Aldo Leopold, 1948
