I'm interested in learning about local environmental organizations, as well as individuals involved in environmental issues.

I know of:
- Sierra Club
- Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision
- Friends of the Rouge
- Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice

Any help/suggestions you could provide is appreciated.

Thanks.

The burbs are legit; I wouldn't go beyond the tri-counties, unless they're doing something amazing. Statewide Orgs are cool, too.

The National Wildlife Federation has their Great Lakes Natural Resource Center in Ann Arbor. They do a lot of community outreach and education, and can always use a volunteer. The staff there is great.
