Beaver Island Archipelago Protection

Protecting Beaver Island’s diverse flora and fauna is paramount to the island’s future. That’s why CRA and partners recently concluded treatment of several of invasive plants including phragmites, reed canary grass, first-year marsh thistle, autumn olive, honeysuckle, multiflora rose and oriental bittersweet. The work was concentrated on the island’s Great Lakes shoreline as well as inland properties.

The Boardman: A River Reborn Fall Update

Work to restore the Boardman River is rounding the next bend as the phase to remove Boardman Dam comes into focus. CRA and the many partners that keep this project moving forward are pleased to report several important milestones and exciting plans ahead.

Custer Weir Now Open

Custer Weir, just south of US 10,  once greeted visitors with no trespassing signs, tall fences and rusting equipment. It was a foreboding and potentially dangerous site. Now, as a result of two very special grants, CRA and partners removed the declining buildings and defunct lamprey barrier to create a new, inviting, all access site to the Pere Marquette River.

Support for Jordan River Bridge

CRA is pleased to announce several big steps toward funding a bridge project over the Jordan River. Recent awards include $50,000 from the Charlevoix County Community Foundation, $100,000 from the Frey Foundation and $150,000 from the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation.
