Upper Black River Restoration
Grant Recipient:

Grant Awarded:

$38,000

Lake Basin(s):

Huron

Project Location(s):

Tower, MI

Huron Pines used bioengineering techniques to stabilize and restore eroding banks and reduce sedimentation on over .13 miles on the Black River.  The Black River provides critical cold-water spanning habitat for the state-threatened Lake Sturgeon. Banks along key stretches of the river were compromised by foot traffic from the public interested in viewing the Lake Sturgeon during the spawning. In addition to the restoration effort, the project included a public outreach component to educate the public on the importance of this spawning habitat to the Sturgeon.
