Ice Mountain

Helping to sustain our waters and natural resources of the Muskegon River Watershed.

The Ice Mountain Environmental Stewardship fund was established in 2002 through the generosity of Great Spring Waters of America, Inc. The fund provides up to $50,000 annually. Typical grants are from $5,000 to $20,000.

Grants are made to sustain the waters and water-dependent natural resources of the Muskegon River Watershed by supporting conservation, enhancement, and restoration projects.

Grant requests are accepted for projects or programs that:

  • Focus on enhancing or improving the biological, chemical, or physical integrity of the Muskegon River Watershed
  • Demonstrate collaboration among organizations
  • Have clearly defined outcomes
  • Leverage other funding sources if possible

Note: Projects or programs that are primarily recreational in nature or designed to increase or improve river access will NOT be considered. Proposals will be accepted for projects located in any county within the Muskegon River Watershed.
