West Michigan Environmental Action Council has been West Michigan’s preeminent resource for environmental education and advocacy since 1968. We are focused on using community action to solve localized climate issues.  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.

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.


The WMEAC Blog is an online publication focused on environmental news and issues in West Michigan and national news and best practices relevant to West Michigan environmentalism.


The WMEAC TV is an our youtube channel where you can find videos about our work, keynote speeches and awards from our events, and even about how long it takes for polluted stormwater to get to Lake Michigan.
