Environmental Policy Initiative

The Environmental Policy Initiative at the Mackinac Center seeks to answer two key questions. First, what unique geographical and environmental features does Michigan have that could contribute to improving the well-being of its residents? Second, how can the state maximize the value of those unique features to promote a balance of environmental health and economic vigor, and secure citizen access to natural resources and the benefits they provide?

This work would not be possible without our generous donors. For information about the Mackinac Center and our benefits please visit our membership page.
