Friday, February 22nd, 2013 marks one of the darkest days in Michigan’s natural
history. That was the day Michigan’s Senate quietly passed S.B. 78 which specifically
removed “Biodiversity” from the long held stated goals and policies by which our state
has managed our public-owned natural resources. No longer will nature, diversity of
species or environmental quality be considered or stand in the way of logging, mining or
drilling for oil and gas in our State Forests.
Additional information on Biodiversity can be found at the Friends of the Jordan River website.
