NORTH MUSKEGON, Mich.—The Muskegon Environmental Research & Education Society (MERES) is more than half way there to funding a new environmental education center.
So far, MERES has collected more than $415,000 for the new facility, which will be located at the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve on Lake Avenue in North Muskegon. The $750,000 LEED certified building will include a classroom, laboratory, general work area, exhibit area and the Michigan Environmental Hall of Fame.
The education center will compliment, not replace, the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve’s current environmental laboratory, which is already used by thousands of area students.
If you’d like to contribute to the environmental education center, donations can be sent to:
