Green River Dam Fish Passage
Grant Recipient:

Grant Awarded:

$50,000

Lake Basin(s):

Michigan

Project Location(s):

Mancelona, MI

The Conservation Resource Alliance installed a step pool fish passage structure to open fish spawning habitat on more than five miles of the Green River.  Removal of this barrier allowed for migration of fishes from Lake Michigan into the tributaries as well as eliminate population fragmentation of the resident species.  The Green River is an important cold water tributary to the Jordan River, one of Michigan’s premier trout streams and a state designated Natural River.  Partners in the effort included Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, and four additional nonprofits.
