The Paw Paw River Watershed
You did it!
JANUARY 2023 UPDATE
You did it! You knocked our year-end appeal to create critical conservation corridors in the Paw Paw River Watershed out of the park!
SWMLC members, donors and supporters donated a total of $177,464 to protect nature in the Paw Paw River Watershed!
Our supporters never cease to amaze us with your generosity and your passion for conserving the beautiful places we all love here in southwest Michigan. Thanks to you, we are now well-positioned over the next year or so to protect the most imperative conservation lands in this significant watershed and to leverage these funds for the greatest impact . . . helping to protect and steward miles of river frontage and hundreds of acres of land, along with the species who live there. Protecting and connecting these critical conservation corridors give our plant and animal species the best chance of surviving, and even thriving, amidst expected changes in climate, and future human development.
The investment you made today will reap endless rewards into the future. We’ll keep you posted on our progress toward completing these important conservation projects . . . thank you for protecting nature in southwest Michigan!
Intact, naturally diverse watersheds like this are disappearing rapidly, so we must protect them while we can!
We can do it, with your help.
SWMLC currently has the opportunity to protect, acquire and steward a combination of parcels that, combined, make up almost 600 acres and nearly 3 miles of waterways in two different parts of the Paw Paw River Watershed.
