Sen. Richardville presents a resolution for 70th MUCC birthday
LANSING - On the final day of Michigan Conservation Week, Sen. Randy Richardville today presented the Michigan United Conservation Clubs with a resolution commemorating the organization's 70 year commitment to protecting Michigan's natural resources.
"The Michigan United Conservation Clubs has been helping protect Michigan's natural resources for 70 years," said Richardville, R-Monroe. "MUCC advocates for the wise and scientific management of our natural resources by maintaining a united front with all outdoor clubs."
In 1937, more than 90 conservationists representing 35 outdoor clubs joined together to promote stewardship of Michigan's natural resources. Now, with nearly 100,000 members and more than 500 clubs, MUCC is the largest statewide conservation organization in the nation.
"MUCC seeks to conserve our natural resources and protect our state's rich outdoor heritage now and for future generations," Richardville said. "The Senate appreciates MUCC's dedication to conservation efforts in Michigan."
To help promote the importance of conservation, the Michigan Senate designated April 22 through May 1 as Michigan Conservation Week. Beginning with Earth Day, the week encompassed National Wildlife Week, the state's trout and turkey openers and an observance of the Michigan United Conservation Club's 70th birthday during today's Senate session.
