MRWA Remembers Peter Wege

The Muskegon River Watershed Assembly (MRWA) mourns the loss of one of its greatest supporters, Peter Wege, who died on Monday, July 7, 2014.

MRWA Chair Greg Mund, states, "Peter has been a true friend and champion for the Muskegon River, watershed residents and all who enjoy this unique resource. His generosity and commitment to preserve our natural resources is appreciated beyond words...the Muskegon River Watershed Assembly lost a gentle, great man who will be missed!"

The MRWA was founded in 1998 by volunteers but the Wege Foundation was instrumental in providing the necessary funding for the organization to sustain itself and accomplish its mission. The Foundation also generated millions of dollars toward research to increase the understanding of the impact of social, ecological, and economic systems on the Muskegon River Watershed.

Gary Noble, MRWA Executive Director, said, “Peter Wege was a great man. He cared as much about the little guy and smaller causes as the larger ones. He had a great way of connecting to people with humor and compassion. I will miss his wisdom.”

Peter’s concern and support for the environment has truly been an inspiration to us all.
