Conservation Priorities

The John Muir Chapter has three current conservation priorities.  These include protecting the Great Lakes and other Water Resources, Moving Beyond Fossil Fuels to Clean Energy, and Protecting Wisconsin's Unique Habitats..  Group and chapter leaders also work on a broad range of related environmental issues throughout Wisconsin, such as air quality, forestry and public lands, biodiversity and endangered species, environmental toxins, invasive species, smart growth, recycling and waste disposal, agricultural policies and more.  We are also active in local elections, since one of our best hopes for long term gains is building a strong legislative base to protect our environment.
