In 1968, CRA was established with one goal - to preserve and protect northern Michigan’s waterways, wildlife, and forests for future generations.

CRA is a private, not-for-profit
501(c)(3) organization.

We restore and protect over 700 miles of rivers, 5,000 miles of tributaries & diverse forests throughout 4 million acres in Northwest Lower Michigan.

Support Conservation that Matters

All of us that live, play, work, or visit this beautiful corner of Michigan share a responsibility to care for our rivers, land, and wildlife. The simplest act to accomplish this is to support the good organizations that protect our natural resources.
