We at Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council
are in the process of improving a website that we secured years ago to be the
home of the Michigan Wetland Action Coalition (www.michiganwetlands.org).Currently this site features the latest
edition of the citizen's guide, "Michigan's Wetlands – Yours to Protect,"
which is a valuable resource for wetland advocates.We would like to volunteer this site as
an appropriate place to incorporate the ideas expressed below, as well as other
ideas that may come up.
Please send comments about what you think
the website's functions should be (message board, action alerts, etc.) and direct
information you would like to see on the site (background info, pictures, etc) to
We are also preparing to launch the bi-weekly
Michigan Wetlands Action Coalition e-newsletter to highlight pressing wetland
issues.In the past Tip of the Mitt
has sent out hard copies of action alerts, but in this day and age we need to
better utilize electronica, and will primarily be
using the e-newsletter to communicate.Please send me your email address if you would like to receive the

make a difference.
group of folks could have a section. This also would allow for folks to share
insights, struggles, what has worked, what has not, etc. The state of Michigan also has
very weak wetlands laws and regulations. If those working on wetlands issues
could come together and fight the fight, our remaining wetlands will be much

Web site for wetlands preservation?
Dull suggested we establish a web site to post information about the
wetlands/hydrogeological questions we have/"the fight".
a great idea. I don't know of anyone with the skills to do so, so I'm
spreading his good idea and hoping someone can suggest a free server or other
cheap way to get something up on the web. Pictures could be included (I
have a lot on disc), email contact information, suggested people to write to
