SG-W:/ Pickerel Lake



Michigan DNR will hold a public hearing at Pinckney High School Auditorium,
10244 Dexter-Pinckney Road, on Tuesday, August 14, 7-9:30 p.m.  Officials
from the DNR will present their plan for "improvements" at the lake,
including a new boat launch.  Friends of Pickerel Lake have done a terrific
job advocating against any changes that would encourage motorized
watercraft to use this beautiful, quiet lake that is a favorite of local
swimmers.

The Dexter Township Board passed a resolution calling for the lake to be
designated a natural area, including a non-gas-motor restriction for
watercraft.

The Ecology Center supports Friends of Pickerel Lake and the Dexter
Township Board in their efforts to preserve the quietness and natural state
of this lake.  We urge concerned citizens to attend the public meeting to
express their views to the DNR.
