DNR Opens Survey Regarding Future of Ludington State Park

The Parks and Recreation Division of the Michigan DNR has opened an online survey in order to receive public opinions and ideas about the future of the Ludington State Park.

The survey asks respondents for input about their satisfaction with campgrounds, beaches, trails, shelters, fishing locations, and landmarks like Big Sable Point Lighthouse. Those taking the survey can then freely propose any ideas or suggestions they may have for the park.

The DNR has big plans for the future of Ludington State Park, and they want to be sure to consider the public’s input as much as possible.

Manistee River Cleanup Recruiting Volunteers

This Saturday, July 11th, over 100 volunteers will gather to help clean and preserve the Manistee River. This annual cleanup event helps to keep the river in good condition for animals living there as well as the people visiting.

Members of the Metro West Steelheaders and the Steelhead Manifesto leading the cleanup are calling for more volunteers. The river runs nearly 200 miles through Michigan so there is virtually no limit to the number of people that can help.

The crew will meet up at High Bridge at 9 AM and clean until 2 PM. After, there will be a cookout to thank volunteers including a prize giveaway.
