Changing Landscape on the Maple River
The Maple River is going through a dramatic evolution this year. CRA and partners are looking forward to the rebirth of nearly a mile of river with the removal of the Lake Kathleen Dam. Plans are also underway to replace the Woodland Road crossing with a free-span timber bridge as well as replace a private two-track crossing on the East Branch with a small free-span bridge.
Maple River Dam Removal EA
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in partnership with Conservation Resource Alliance announce the availability of the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the following Maple River Restoration Projects: Lake Kathleen Dam Removal, Maple River- Woodland Road Crossing and East Branch Maple River- Private Two-Track Crossing. This document was prepared by Streamside Ecological Services for review by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

Coldwater Revival on the Boardman
It’s been a big year for the Boardman River. For the first time in over 100 years, the river flowed through its historic channel under the new Cass Road bridge. Anyone who witnessed this transformation got to see history being made – the wow factor was truly unparalleled. Beginning in June, 14 siphons began to draw down Keystone Pond. A detailed process in its own right, each siphon was hand-controlled to ensure the impoundment was drawn down properly. Once lowered sufficiently, the river was carefully woven first through a temporary channel and then to its final resting place where nature intended it to be.
Dam Management Grant Program Supports Sabin Dam Removal

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources awarded a $75,000 grant through the Dam Management Grant Program to Conservation Resource Alliance. This award was part of $3.35M awarded through this program in 2017 to help remove obsolete structures or repair functioning dams resulting in improved fisheries, aquatic resources and public safety.
