The Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve is an environmental organization comprised of grassroots individuals who take environmental ethics to heart.
We focus on informing the public about the watershed, conducting sound science, and protecting the resources from threats like sulfide mining. We have many strong programs to help us, such as the Yellow Dog Riverkeeper ® program, and more. There are many pressures on the rivers and forests and we strive to balance the need for wild places with the necessities of humankind. This truly is one of the last unspoiled wilderness areas in the eastern United States.
Our watershed is located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in Baraga and Marquette County. It runs free and clean through wild country until it eventually reaches Lake Superior. This is how we want it to stay. Please take a look through our website and consider becoming a member or donating to help our mission.
