Maple River Project Wraps up for the Winter

The systematic attack on the worst road crossings and man-made barriers on the Maple River in Emmet county resulted in great successes in 2018. The Lake Kathleen Dam is gone and a beautiful timber bridge stands at the site of the former dilapidated culvert crossing on Woodland Road. ...More 

Farewell Sabin Dam

It is gone! The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and many partners have coordinated the removal of the third dam as The Boardman: A River Reborn project rolls on. Check out the liberated Boardman River to see what the future of this beloved Blue Ribbon Trout Stream looks like.

In 1968, CRA was established with one goal - to preserve and protect northern Michigan’s waterways, wildlife, and forests for future generations.

CRA is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We restore and protect over 700 miles of rivers, 5,000 miles of tributaries & diverse forests throughout 4 million acres in Northwest Lower Michigan.
