NOTE:  Save the Wild U.P. is the Mining Action Group!

Save the Wild U.P. is merging with the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition, which is also a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit. Save the Wild U.P. ceases operation as a stand-alone nonprofit when the merger is completed on December 31, 2016. Our name is changing, but our work continues! We need your support more than ever, friend. Your generous contributions supporting grassroots activism continue to be gratefully accepted, and fully tax-deductible.


Effective immediately, please direct your donation as follows:

Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition
Attention: “UPEC Mining Action Group
P.O. Box 673
Houghton, MI 49931

Your generous donation to the Mining Action Group will help ensure that our wild lands and clean waters are protected from the hazards of sulfide mining for future generations. Contributions to the Mining Action Group are a wise investment in the future of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the Great Lakes. Your financial support helps us continue to raise awareness about the hazards of sulfide mining, engaging more concerned citizens to become actively involved in protecting the health of our communities, wild lands and clean water.

Now that we’ve joined forces with the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition, a member-based organization founded in 1976 to help protect the Upper Peninsula’s great places, we hope you’ll become a member of UPEC. For a minimum donation of $25, you’ll receive an automatic annual UPEC membership, updates on the Mining Action Group’s work, a free one year subscription to UPEC’s quarterly newsletter, and a free invitation to attend UPEC’s annual “Celebrate the U.P.” event.

Or make a one-time contribution of any size:

We can’t do it without you! Thanks for your generous support.
