Our Mission Statement
The Aquavists are an informed and empowered activist community dedicated to protecting Northern Michigan's waters. We form a unique rapid response team to act as a voice for the waters in Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, and Emmet counties.
What we do
Aquavists provide support to our neighbors, using our centrally-located Base Camp in Cyberspace! Is there an issue in your county that involves water resources and has you worried? Maybe the thing you are concerned about just happened in a neighboring county. Wouldn't you like to hear how it was handled, and what kind of things you might encounter? Bring it to our attention! Let us know what's going on, what questions you have, and what kind of help you need to address the situation. We want to inform and empower you, and make it easier for you to solve problems and share resources.
Additionally, our state legislature deals with many issues that directly impact our water resources in Northern Michigan. Often, federal issues are also relevant because of our proximity to the Great Lakes. Aquavists will highlight these topics, as well, and provide you with resources to take action.
You can join our email distribution list. To connect with the Aquavists, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 231-347-1181, ext. 118.
