Keep the UP Wild: The Environmental Law and Policy Center (ELPC)

Keep the UP Wild

The Environmental Law and Policy Center (ELPC) and their Michigan partners are currently working on a project to designate four areas in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula as federal Wilderness areas – three new areas and one addition to an existing Wilderness area.

View a brief project memo describing this effort as well as the current crop of Existing Michigan Wilderness Areas in the state. Please visit their project website which lists the more than 125 existing organizations already supporting this effort. Indigenous voices, tribes, and the broader business community have been two of their highest prioritizations on this project.
