Betsie River-Crystal Lake Watershed Grant

The Friends of Betsie Bay were officially notified the long awaited approval from the EPA for the Northwest Michigan Council of Governments (NMCoG) grant to begin the process of forming a Betsie River-Crystal Lake Watershed plan.

Basically, this will include the initial steps of forming a Board with all the of partnering organizations represented and creating a plan through lots of surveying, public outreach and educational efforts.

We hope to have news of more specific progress after January, when the grant goes into effect. This could be the key to helping us unlock larger federal grants for projects which are all dependent on issues needing to be identified through this planning process. GOOD NEWS! Stay tuned…
