The fourth annual Michigan Clean Water
Corps (MiCorps) conference was held October 20-21, 2008, at the
Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center in Higgins Lake, Michigan. The
conference featured presentations from volunteers from across the
state of Michigan. We celebrated the amazing work that is being done
by the MiCorps volunteers to protect Michigan's lakes and streams.
In addition, the conference included presentations and training from
regional experts, MiCorps staff and the Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality. Linda Green, University of Rhode Island (URI)
Cooperative Extension, was the keynote speaker. Linda is a
nationally recognized leader and educator who has worked in the area
of volunteer monitoring for over 20 years. Her presentation was very
well received and was an inspiritation to many attendees.
