Brozofsky Creek & Platte Rd Crossing Replacement

The nonoperational Tamarack Trout Farm was among the top problems in the Platte River Watershed. A complex set of ownership and use patterns had resulted in a diversion of natural flow, excessive sedimentation, and degradation of the natural wetland and creeks. CRA and partners completed restoration of one of the road/stream crossings on Brozofsky Creek at Platte Road, just downstream of the former trout farm.

Next Chapter on the Betsie and Platte Rivers

The last six years have brought tremendous opportunities through the EPA to coordinate large scale restoration projects in Northern Michigan. The waters of Benzie County have been buzzing with activity since. We are currently in the third phase of work in the Betsie River Watershed and the Platte River Watershed with funding through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Sustain Our Great Lakes program. This phase includes the replacement of several severely degraded road/stream crossings as well as streambank stabilization and in-stream habitat work.

State parks celebrate Threatened and Endangered Species Week Aug. 4-10
By Karen Gourlay and Ed Golder, Michigan DNR

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Michigan’s Endangered Species Act, the important legislation that has been critical to the recovery of many different species. The Department of Natural Resources is celebrating this milestone with a week of programming in several of Michigan’s state parks.

MI-MAST Citizen Science

Researchers at Michigan State University have been working with the Michigan DNR to create a program that allows citizens to participate in research to benefit wildlife conservation. The goal of the program is to quantify the amount of wild fruits and nuts (mast) throughout the state each year. Various species rely heavily on these food sources, and this information will help the DNR better manage these species.
