About Us

Michigan Waterfront Alliance (MWA) is a non-profit corporation that was formed over twenty years ago in order to contribute to the creation or preservation of state laws, and/or policies designed to protect, preserve, and promote the sustainable use of inland water resources located in the State of Michigan. Our primary mission will be accomplished by pro-active participation in Michigan’s legislative process, certain court cases, and/or by direct involvement with natural resources management, or environmental quality focused state agencies or departments.

This membership-based corporation maintains the ability to effectively influence Michigan’s legislative process through lobbying, an action that is not currently permitted by 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. We encourage waterfront property owners, conservation minded citizens, and anyone else concerned about the future of Michigan’ vast treasure of water resources to become contributing members of our organization.
