West Michigan Environmental Action Council has been West Michigan’s preeminent resource for environmental education and advocacy since 1968.  Founded by a diverse group of concerned citizens and organizational stakeholders, WMEAC is a non-profit, 501C3 organization uniquely positioned to respond to emerging issues and new threats to West Michigan’s natural and human ecologies, strategically focused on Building Sustainable Communities and Protecting Water Resources.

Since the earliest days of the environmental movement, WMEAC has provided West Michigan citizens a means to take action on behalf of the environment.  Active members and program participants see the fruit of their labors in their daily lives, in nature, in the local economy, and on the news.  Our service area includes the eight-county West Michigan region:  Allegan, Barry, Ionia, Kent, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo and Ottawa, with primary emphasis on the Grand Rapids, Holland and Muskegon metropolitan areas.
