“Sometimes in the past we’ve reacted to environmental violations and environmental problems after the resource has been destroyed,” Reisig said. “We want to stay ahead of the game and have a fund to file a restraining order to keep a bulldozer out of the bay, for example, at Cherry Tree Inn.” Reisig hopes to collect $50,000 to $100,000 for a recently created program to pay for legal costs and help support NMEAC and other area environmental groups.
We are worked to Protect a Precious and Vital Wetland Near Interlochen
This was a pending development that threatened water quality in the Little Betsie River watershed. We are currently working to raise awareness and generate funds for a legal action by Interlochen and Green Lake residents in response to this development plan, which includes filling a sensitive wetland area, building a road, and extensive dredging and filling close to the Little Betsie River, between Diamond Park Rd. and M-137.
Donations will be taken for the NMEAC Environmental Legacy fund, which is financing legal action to help fight this development.
