The Michigan Outdoor Writers Association (MOWA), in partnership with Enbridge, has selected Little Forks Conservancy as its recipient of the MOWA Clean Waterways Award for 2022.
Little Forks Conservancy received the award, which recognizes and rewards organizations that demonstrate continuous, voluntary efforts to protect, preserve, and enhance the lakes, rivers, and streams of Michigan, and in particular for Little Forks' efforts to improve the overall health of the Cedar River watershed in Gladwin and Clare counties, and land adjacent to the Tittabawassee River between Midland and Sanford.
“The award means so much to Little Forks. As an organization founded on a goal to protect lands along our local rivers and streams, being recognized for our work to improve water quality is an honor and lets us know our work is making a difference”, said Little Forks Conservancy Executive Director Elan Lipschitz.
Lipschitz was presented with a plaque and $500 at MOWA’s annual conference in the Dow Conference Center in Hillsdale Michigan. “The funding will help us with our efforts to protect and improve land within the Cedar River watershed”, added Lipschitz.
Threats to Michigan’s waterways are on the rise and it’s more important than ever to protect our most vital and treasured assets. While stewardship of our waterways is everyone’s responsibility, MOWA is specifically seeking to reward local or regional organizations operating within the state of Michigan in their voluntary stewardship efforts.
