Happenings on Syers Creek & the Little Manistee River Watershed
October 22, 2015, 9:00 am
If you happen to run across Syers Creek, tucked away in Lake County, you'll find a high quality coldwater stream with great habitat for brook trout and mottled sculpin. Follow this Little Manistee River tributary far enough upstream however, and you may find a dry streambed caused by a sand berm dam. Created to provide vehicle access to adjacent private lands, the 120' long and 6' high berm restricts movement of aquatic species, increases sedimentation and elevates water temperatures.
Patagonia Supports CRA
September 8, 2015, 12:00 am
Each year, Patagonia pledges 1% of their sales to the protection and restoration of the natural environment. They call it their Earth Tax. This year, they identified 741 grassroots environmental groups in 18 countries and gave them $6.2 million in cash to do important work to restore rivers and forests, stop mines, protect endangered wildlife and habitat, and mitigate the effects of climate change. CRA is proud to be among the list making a difference in Michigan.

Northern Michigan really took a wallop from that wicked storm on August 2. The clean-up and the impact will linger for months. Conservation Resource Alliance was spared from the falling trees and flying lawn furniture. But, all that lightning and erratic electrical power surges took out our network server. Humbling to realize how dependent we have become on the technology that we take for granted every day.
