Who Are We?
Keweenaw Outdoor Recreation Coalition (KORC) brings together individuals, businesses, and outdoor recreation, conservation, and community organizations to secure permanent public access to at-risk land in the Keweenaw. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, from resource professionals and hospitality workers to students and retirees. All manner of outdoor enthusiast is involved because we are all concerned with what is at stake: the potential loss or degradation of the vast landscapes found in the heart of the Keweenaw Peninsula. It's not just forestland that could be lost. At risk is our way of life.
Whether you are a powder hound on skis or a hunter that values well-managed and undeveloped forests, protecting the Keweenaw's at-risk landscapes is vital if we are to preserve our local traditions. The loss of lands owned by absentee investment firms affects us all. It is for this reason that we have united to stand up for our entire community. By bringing together groups under our umbrella, the Keweenaw Outdoor Recreation Coalition can speak with one voice to better advocate for our shared interests.
Our founding committee members are:
Jim Vivian III
We encourage you to join us in our efforts to secure permanent, local control over our community's future. Don't let corporate interests dictate how we can utilize our community's natural and recreational resources.
