Improving Critical Brook Trout Habitat in the Northern Lake Huron Basin (MI)
Grant Recipient:

Grant Awarded:

$455,337

Lake Basin(s):

Huron

Project Location(s):

Alcona, Iosco, Ogemaw, Oscoda, and Presque Isle counties, MI

Road/stream crossings block the passage of fish and other aquatic organisms, preventing movement throughout stream and river systems, limiting fish population sustainability and reducing access to high-quality stream habitat. Huron Pines will collaborate with county road commissions and other partners to replace 9 priority road/stream crossings to reconnect 77 miles of upstream habitat for brook trout and other native and species and reduce inputs of sediment and other pollutants by 19.7 tons per year through installation of road/stream crossing BMPs. This project will improve freshwater resources and local infrastructure, and help to promote sustainable brook trout populations across Northeast Michigan.
