E-M:/ Urgent - Help Save 17 acres on Lake MI

Enviro-Mich message from Marcy Colclough <marcydolphin@yahoo.com>

The Van Buren County Commissioners are deciding the
fate of North Point Conservation Area (also known as
the "Old Boy Scout Camp") on October 9 at 4:30 pm. 

This is YOUR chance to MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  Take a few
minutes and help save 17 acres on Lake Michigan. The
property is a few miles south of South Haven (adjacent
to Van Buren State Park).  The site contains forested
critical dunes and over 400 feet of Lake Michigan
frontage.  It has been in public ownership for almost
a century! (See www.vbco.org/northpoint.asp for more
information.)   Van Buren County Commissioners are
deciding on Oct 9 whether to sell the property to
finance a new courthouse.  

WHAT CAN YOU DO?  (You can (should) do this EVEN IF
you do not live in Van Buren County!!!  Lake Michigan
property and critical dunes are a treasure for
everyone in Michigan and beyond!!)
