DNR Funding for Pere Marquette Watershed

May 14, 2017

CRA is excited to announce the final funding needed to restore and re-connect over 14 miles of degraded habitat on Sanborn Creek, a key tributary to the Pere Marquette River. Michigan DNR approved $95,000 towards the restoration of Sanborn Creek. By reconnecting habitat that has been fragmented for over 100 years, CRA and partners are eliminating warming caused by the impounded water and reconnecting natural floodplains.

The DNR Aquatic Habitat Grant Program is funded annually by a portion of fishing and hunting license sales. The project will directly benefit important fish species, including brook and brown trout, as well as macroinvertebrates and other wildlife that depend on the river.

"These recipients will use these grant funds to enhance a broad range of aquatic habitat, the foundation for Michigan's world-class fishing opportunities,” said Kevin Wehrly, and inland research biologist with the DNR’s Fisheries Division. “We’re excited for these projects to get under way and to see what a difference they make."
