Conservation Organizations and Issues [series]

The Conservation Organizations and Issues series brings together various conservation and environmental groups and causes. These include the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Advisory Commission, files relating to the preservation of Sturgeon Bay Dunes and Sleeping Bear Dunes, Tanton's association with the Michigan Natural Areas Council, the Wilderness and Natural Areas Advisory Board, and the Mackinac Chapter of the Sierra Club. In addition, there are files pertaining to the Birchwood Suit and Monroe Creek Suit documenting Tanton's involvement with environmentally-related civil suits. Legal documents comprise the bulk of these last files, though there is also included here Tanton's correspondence with attorneys, other environmentalists, and the general public.
