Motivating Issue

Conservation of all species, not just humans. The loss of biological diversity is one of the worst impacts we are having on our planet.

Why I Belong To MEIC

MEIC is very good at seeing what’s coming over the horizon. They led on our subdivision and streambed laws, for which I’m very grateful every time I see an unspoiled view.
