The Huron River Watershed Council has been selected as the first Non-Profit Organization to be inducted in to the Michigan Environmental Hall of Fame, announced officials with the Muskegon Environmental Research & Education Society on Tuesday. The Society’s press release stated that HRWC is known for “building partnerships between and among communities, community leaders, residents and commercial enterprises.” Executive Director Laura Rubin will represent HRWC at the inaugural induction ceremony for the Hall of Fame on May 2, 2012 at the Gerald R. Ford Museum in Grand Rapids.
The Society’s Chairman Ron Brown commended HRWC on making “a significant difference in improving the environment of the Huron River. It is time that we bring honor to those non-profits that have worked tirelessly to make sure we can always have a safe and nurturing environment to live in, not just for ourselves, but for the generations to come.” HRWC is honored by this recognition.
The first class of inductees also includes five impressive individuals from around the state for their roles in promoting environmental causes.
