The Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council identified, developed, and implemented a number of restoration projects in the Cheboygan River Watershed. The project sought to protect the diversity of aquatic habitats and maintain excellent recreational opportunities within the Watershed by controlling and managing contributions of sediments, nutrients, and aquatic invasive species. Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council completed surveys for the presence of quagga mussels and non-native Phragmites austrailis. Using this data, the Council developed a control and management plan for quagga mussels and non-native Phragmites in the Cheboygan River Watershed. The project also restored 700 linear feet of lakeshore and streambank using soft engineering techniques.
