Northern Michigan contains some of the most important, diverse, and pristine water resources on earth. The Great Lakes, inland lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands provide homes for a plentiful array of wildlife. These waters are a way of life and a cherished vacation destination. The vastness, clarity, and ageless beauty of these waters have the power to lull us into a false sense of security, though. These waters seem beyond the reach of time, and out of harm's way. Their inherent fragility is often forgotten.
Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council is here to protect the future of these waters. The rich character of Northern Michigan can be preserved forever, and future generations will appreciate the unspoiled character of the north – a tradition built around our magnificent waters. Founded in 1979, the Watershed Council is the lead organization for water resources protection in Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, and Emmet Counties. Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council speaks for our members, including full-time and seasonal residents, lake associations, and businesses. We work to maintain the environmental integrity and economic and aesthetic values of the Great Lakes, Inland Lakes, Rivers and Streams, Wetlands and Groundwater.
