“It’s time we gave statewide recognition to projects, organizations and people for making our quality of life better,” said Ron Brown, the Hall of Fame chairman who also serves as treasurer of the Muskegon Environmental Research and Environmental Society.

The Muskegon-based organization recently sent out letters to environmental organizations statewide soliciting nominations for inductees. The Hall of Fame plans to induct the first class in the spring. Nominations are due by Feb. 20.

A physical location for the Hall of Fame hasn’t been decided yet, but organizers said a Muskegon site is likely.

Nominations may be sent to the Michigan Environmental Hall of Fame, P.O. Box 5038, North Muskegon, MI 49445; or e-mailed to Brown at ronaldbrown0284@att.net.
