The Glen Lake Association has begun a watershed protection project that will involve the GLA and our three townships – Glen Arbor, Empire, and Kasson. We have hired Tony Groves for our consultant and he has outlined some interesting points in his article “Planning and Zoning at the Watershed Level: Lessons Learned”. If you have any questions about this project, please contact Rob Karner, watershed biologist for further information. firstname.lastname@example.org.
This video was produced by the Leelanau Conservancy, showing the pristine upper reaches of Hatlem Creek as well as the marl spring at its source. Hatlem Creek is the largest stream feeding into Glen Lake.
In the photo, the dark area are thousands of Emerald Shiners (minnows) that are happily spawning! Great job by the Leelanau County Road Commission on fixing the culvert beneath MacFarlane Rd. The work was completed by Elmer’s Crane and Dozer. The project was completed in about 4 weeks and MacFarlane Rd. is now open.
