Hi folks — blessed with more than 400 miles
of popular fishing and canoeing water, the PineRiver and the UpperManisteeRiver are tremendous public assets. Their waters enrich
local lives, and the fish and wildlife that the rivers support bring outdoor
enthusiasts to area businesses. But both of these premier rivers also are under
increasing development pressure. Intensive logging, housing construction, and
commercial development now threaten to degrade stream qualities and kill fish
and wildlife with erosion and pollution.
Join citizens from the Pine River Watershed Council and the Upper Manistee
River Association to learn more about the threats to these rivers, Michigan’s nationally recognized Natural
Rivers Program, and what you can do to help protect the Pine and UpperManisteeRivers.
The groups will hold public informational forums on
the following dates:
June 26, 2002
the Cadillac High School Auditorium, Cadillac, MI (call Donna at 231-876-5902 for directions)
July 24, 2002
the AuSable Primary Cafeteria, Grayling, MI (call
Karen at 909-344-3508 for directions)
Contact Dick Shotwell, president of the Pine River Association,
at email@example.com for more information.
