Muskegon Lake Wildlife Habitat Improvement & Education Project

Location: Muskegon County

Project Status: Completed in 2008

Partnering with Timberland RC&D and the Muskegon Lake Public Advisory Council (MLPAC), this two-year project developed wildlife targets and restored wildlife habitat along the southern shore of Muskegon Lake.

In summer 2007, habitat improvement projects were completed along the Muskegon Lakeshore Trail, Grand Trunk, Lafarge, YMCA and private landowner’s property.

A habitat guide was produced to help the community tackle some of the work needed to restore and improve impairments to fish and wildlife habitat in the Muskegon Lake Area of Concern and to show restoration goals for Fish & Wildlife Beneficial Use Impairments.

This project was completed in January 2008

More information and the Habitat Guide are available at the MLWP’s website.
