Lake Michigan Federation

Who We Are: The Lake Michigan Federation works to restore fish and wildlife habitat, conserve land and water, and eliminate toxics in the watershed of America's largest lake. We achieve these through education, research, law, science, economics, and strategic partnerships. Understanding the lake is easy. Lake Michigan faces three general challenges:

  1. Restoring fish & wildlife habitat
  2. Stopping toxic pollution
  3. Conserving land & water

    The Federation believes so strongly that public understanding of problems is the first step toward restoring the lake that we've structured our entire organization around these three basic issues. We call these three departments "Waves" because restoring Lake Michigan health requires ongoing, persistent efforts by citizens, volunteers, and staff to understand problems and provide constructive solutions just as waves continuously roll toward the shore.

As the IL Hub, LMF provides local Great Lakes focused organizations with the following:

  • GLAHN grant funding information, applications, etc.
  • Assistance in obtaining involvement and benefits from the Great Lakes Aquatic Habitat Directory project- upon request
  • Networking between members and local officials to encourage the restoration of aquatic habitats on or near the Illinois shoreline in keeping with the biodiversity recovery goals of Chicago Wilderness.
  • Coordinate meetings/trainings with Hub members to evaluate local options for habitat recovery/preservation and develop advocacy strategies to acheive these goals.
  • Technical, legal, and outreach support for local grassroots initiatives through the Lake Michigan Community Council.
