Dead River Community Forest Acquisition

Upper Peninsula Land Conservancy
Michigan (Other)

The Upper Peninsula Land Conservancy (UPLC) will use this grant to fund the purchase and permanent protection of 186 acres of diverse, healthy forest and nearly three miles of riverfront on the edge of expanding development in Marquette Township.  This land is easily accessible and beloved by the community, critical to drinking water supplies, and home to rare and threatened plants, animals, and geological formations, UPLC plans to make the forest an educational hub in partnership with local institutions.
