Guardian for your waters.

Celebrate 30 years of protecting the Grand Traverse Bay watershed by helping us reach our goal of recruiting 30 new Bay Guardians in 2024. Become a Bay Guardian today!

As a Bay Guardian, your year-round generosity sustains efforts to monitor and protect our waters through all four seasons.

Your weekly, monthly, or quarterly gifts will do amazing things every day, like:

  • Monitor stream sites for threats to water health.
  • Respond to and investigate concerns reported by community members.
  • Plant native vegetation along streambanks and in rain gardens to prevent erosion, capture stormwater, and provide habitat for wildlife.
  • Assist communities with developing policies that protect our water.
  • Amplify our capacity to research and apply for new grant funding for on-the-ground restoration projects.

Will YOU be a guardian for your waters?

We protect the
water you love.
