Why Join MLSA?
We appreciate your interest in membership with Michigan Lakes and Streams Association, Inc. With any of the membership options above you will receive our quarterly publication, The Michigan Riparian magazine and our monthly email newsletter, both are important sources to help keep you informed of Michigan water issues. We would be unable to offer the rich content of both sources without the funding we receive from memberships. Below I have listed some of the other exciting things we do:
- We bring riparians and lake associations together for networking and collaboration at regional events and our annual conference.
- Our state-wide network of collaborative partners includes the Michigan DNR and EGLE, the Michigan Inland Lake Partnership, the Michigan Natural Shoreline Partnership, our state’s great universities and colleges, and non‐profit organizations from across the state.
- We fund a Michigan State University Fisheries and Wildlife position to help educate people about Michigan’s water resources.
- We have been the program administrator for the Cooperative Lakes Monitoring Program (CLMP) in collaboration with our MiCorps partners.
- Working with our MSU partners, we offer Michigan’s only Lake and Stream Leadership Institute.
- We are dedicated to the support, encouragement and sustenance of our state’s thousands of riparian lake associations.
- We provide educational brochures and publications written by experts.
- We partner with the Michigan Chapter of NALMS to provide a scholarship and offer our own scholarships for students working on lake issues.
