Land Programs Director's Files [series]:

The Land Programs Director's Files series is comprised of three sub-series (in addition to the general sub-series, Other) based upon the individuals who have held this position since its inception in 1994 until 2008: Julie Stoneman, Conan Smith, and Brad Garmon. The Land Programs Director is intimately involved in MEC's Land Stewardship Initiative and oversees the various aspects of the council's land use programs.

 
Julie Stoneman [subseries]:

Julie Stoneman's files include her business correspondence from 1994 until her departure in 1998 as well as records related to her work on Michigan Drain Code Revision and Takings legislation. MEC's Land Stewardship Initiative (LSI) is particularly well documented in this sub-series, which includes biweekly updates of LSI activities from the Michigan Environmental Reporter newsletter. The series includes information on mini-grants awarded by MEC to other environmental groups as part of LSI as well as separate grants provided in conjunction with the Michigan Economic and Environmental Roundtable (MEER). Stoneman's records also document MEC's interaction with Michigan Integrated Food and Farming Systems and the One Michigan Initiative.
