Michigan Green School Program

Welcome to Green Macomb

     Because of Macomb County’s proximity to Lake St. Clair, we have long been a regional leader in protecting the environment — from launching clean water initiatives, to championing smarter development and wetland conservation.

     The Board of Commissioners created the Green Macomb initiative to showcase the many local services and efforts designed to reduce energy use, keep the environment clean, preserve our natural resources, and create green jobs.

    Some of our efforts were made possible with federal funds from the Recovery Act (www.recovery.gov).

     We hope that our efforts, along with the “green tools” showcased here, will help our residents, businesses and municipalities preserve and protect the natural beauty of Macomb County and become more environmentally friendly and energy efficient.

     Together, we pursue a better quality of life for ourselves, and generations to come.
