The Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition (UPEC) is the only grassroots group that focuses solely on environmental issues across all of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
UPEC is made up of several hundred interested individual members as well as organizational members. We are a nonprofit, registered 501(c)(3) organization.
In our decades of citizen activism, we have organized dozens of educational forums on everything from recycling to National Forest management plans to severed mineral rights and conservation easements.
There are lots of ways to get involved… please look around our website and let us know if you have any questions.
The Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition's mission is protecting and maintaining the unique environmental qualities of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan by educating the public and acting as a watchdog to industry and government.
