Kettunen Center, Tustin
The 12th annual Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) conference will feature presentations from volunteers around the state, regional experts, and MDEQ and MiCorps staff. Presentations will cover both lake and stream topics of interest and success stories from volunteer monitoring efforts.

The conference is intended for volunteer monitoring program leaders, citizen volunteers, water resource professionals, and others interested in the health and protection of Michigan’s rivers, lakes and streams.
