Preserving our rich natural resources and increasing access to the Saginaw Bay

Our area is unique and defined by its numerous natural parks, waterways, and beaches. We are home to the largest contiguous freshwater coastal wetland system in the United States. With donor support, we grant to organizations and efforts working to protect our natural landscape and open access for all to enjoy its beauty.

Engage communities and activate local solutions to sustain a healthy Lake Huron Forever.

Lake Huron Forever initiative logoThe Lake Huron Forever initiative was developed in 2019 alongside other shoreline community foundations and conservation partners from the United States and Canada to advance water quality protection and healthy, sustainable communities on both sides of the lake. This initiative aims to support community conversation and collaboration on the design and implementation of on-the-ground work to strengthen the health and well-being of residents, as well as natural resources.

Protecting water quality, ensuring the diversity of plant and animal life and supporting communities across the region means committing to the long-term protection of Lake Huron. In the coming years, we strive to engage communities and activate collaboration and partnerships to sustain a healthy Lake Huron through the Lake Huron Forever initiative.
