Without the community support that we received about five years ago, I don't think we would be here today making the great strides that we are making. It has all been about partnership and communication.
-Sara Pearson, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, 2015
Community members use the Muskegon River for kayaking, fishing, and tubing. However, access is limited near the Zephyr site because the land is privately owned. In interviews conducted by Caitie Nigrelli and her intern, 27 stakeholders spoke about the community's interests in the cleanup at Zephyr. Read more in the full report.
The Muskegon Lake Watershed Partnership invites you to participate in the continued efforts toward a clean and usable watershed. Join them at their monthly meetings every third Thursday of the month. Visit the MLWP website or contact Kathy Evans for more information!
