Here is a link to my January article for The Lakeshore Guardian:
Thumb Habitats
Ancient Beaches of Lake Huron, Part 2
Building on a Lakeshore Legacy
By Bill Collins
"Last month featured a description of the glacial beach ridge and swale habitat along Lake Huron , formed by higher lake levels roughly 4,500 years ago. This month features two developments within that habitat in Fort Gratiot Township , Saint Clair County, and the effort to balance development with preservation at each site. These are "Shorewood Forrest", and "Lake Huron Woods" retirement center. Seeing any of the habitat lost is painful, knowing how unique it is and how little is left. But, while there is always room for improvement, these are two bright spots in a decade of widespread destruction."
