*MEDIA ADVISORY *

/Michigan//’s Legacy at Risk:
How Michigan’s DNR and DEQ have suffered major losses of funding, and the consequences we face as a state/


/ /

*WHAT:* Press conference in Lansing, MI

*WHEN:* Wednesday morning, Sept. 26, 2007 10:00 AM

*WHERE: *South Steps of the State Capitol Building

*WHO:* Michigan League of Conservation Education Fund, representatives from Michigan ’s environmental community and citizens concerned about budget cuts to DNR and DEQ.

*WHY:* Because full funding for the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Environmental Quality are critical for the health of Michigan’s citizens and our State’s natural beauty. State Park closures, reduced protection for Michigan’s natural resources, and delays in cleaning up toxic contamination place Michigan’s prosperity at risk.

Adequate funding to protect the State’s unparalleled natural resources must be part of any budget agreement.
