Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy
SWMLC works in the nine counties of southwest Michigan to preserve wild and scenic places for today — and keep them healthy for tomorrow. Since its inception, SWMLC has protected almost 14,000 acres of dunes, wetlands, forests, savannas, prairies, farms and vineyards that give our region its distinctive character.
