William James

Our mission is to protect the land, water, and wildlife in the headwaters region of the Clinton, Shiawassee, Huron, and Flint rivers through preservation, stewardship, and education.

Our vision is to support biodiversity and the quality of life for our communities and the future generations of Oakland County and beyond.

  • Leadership
    We serve as community leaders in protecting our natural environment. To accomplish our goals requires vision, creativity, integrity, and perseverance.​
