The MRC was started over 30 years ago by a group of passionate individuals who shared a vision to advance resource conservation issues in our great state. It is governed by a 15 member Board of Directors representing public, private, and nonprofit agencies across Michigan. The MRC's work is carried out by a variety of committees and staff.
