E-M:/ South Fox Island

Enviro-Mich message from "Upton, Brian" <BUPTON@mail.gtbindians.com>

For anyone who hasn't seen it, here's the article on the proposed South Fox
land exchange from this week's Leelanau Enterprise.  The articles addresses
both the upcoming public meetings next week and use of all-terrain vehicles
(ATV's) on South Fox Island.  While the website doesn't include it, the
actual newspaper had a photograph of an ATV on state land on South Fox
Island (near the lighthouse) which was taken last fall.


Also, the USFWS has announced it has extended the time for public comment to
be submitted on the proposed land exchange.  The deadline is now July 15,
2001 as explained on the FWS South Fox website:
http://midwest.fws.gov/NEPA/SouthFox/index.html   Since some people have had
problems with this hyperlink, if it doesn't work for you, type in
"http://midwest.fws.gov", and then click on the "NEPA" option under
"Wildlife and Habitat" (on right side of webpage).  That will bring up the
South Fox Island option which you can then click on.
