Upper Peninsula RC&D

The Upper Peninsula Resource Conservation & Development Council (UP RC&D) is a non-profit corporation whose vision is to promote the conservation of the natural resources of the Upper Peninsula for the benefit of its current and future residents. The Council will strive for a balance between the management of natural resources to protect the environment, and the implementation of economic development activities in order to sustain economy for the region. We will identify resource conservation and land use issues, and work with local communities to address these concerns.

Mission: To foster partnerships among diverse stakeholders that support a healthy environment and economy for the Upper Peninsula.

Our Council is a volunteer-supported and volunteer-directed nonprofit corporation that relies on effective parterships between local leaders, partnering agency staff, and private donors to achieve its goal: to make the U.P. a better place to live, work and play.
