Welcome to the
Michigan Nature Association!
Established in 1952, MNA is a non-profit, conservation organization dedicated
to protecting Michigan's exceptional natural areas
as well as rare and endangered plants and animals.
For more than fifty years, MNA has worked to acquire more than 160 nature sanctuaries in nearly 60 counties from the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula in the Upper Peninsula all the way to the Indiana/Ohio border. Through the support of our members, donors and volunteers, we protect nearly 10,000 acres throughout the state,
now and forever.
MNA Receives $25,000 Grant from the Consumers Energy Foundation
Of the 169 nature sanctuaries MNA protects around the state, more than a third will benefit from this grant whether it be through updated trails and trail markings or the clearing out of garbage and invasive species. The grant will be used to accomplish more than 60 stewardship projects across the southern half of the Lower Peninsula.
