HELPING TO STOP SOIL EROSION

Beginning in the spring of 2013, the Genesee County Parks began a project to help stop soil erosion on Holloway. The first area they addressed was a strip of shoreline along the Wolverine Campground. This project is possible because of a 5-year grant through the DNR. As additional matching funds become available, the plan is to continue the retaining wall along the campground shoreline.  As of the spring of 2016, the project along Wolverine Campground was complete.

WHAT IS GOING ON AT THE STANLEY ROAD TUBES?

Zone 4 Leader, Dennis McCann sent us these photos of the new “tubes” that have arrived on Stanley Road.  This project is part of the installation of the water line that is running down Stanley Road.

 SHOW US YOUR FINDS!

Since the water level is down lower than normal, many unusual things are being revealed!  If you see something out of the ordinary, send us a picture and we will share it with everyone on the website (send your pics to hefterfamily@yahoo.com)!  Look at all the wonderful things that have been discovered!

 TALK ABOUT FINDS!. . .

On October 15, Genesee County Parks removed a truck, a car, and a boat motor from the water at the boat launch!  According to Nancy Edwards, Recreation Programs and Grants Officer of the Genesee County Parks & Recreation Commission, “They pulled one truck, one car, and the boat engine out yesterday.  We know there’s a least one more vehicle in there and they plan to take care of that in the spring.  The truck was definitely stolen; the radio was missing and the column had been punched.” 

“I just got some new information about the car.  Turns out. . . it was an accident. The owner parked the car at the boat launch, went for a walk, and when he came back it was missing, so he reported it stolen.  It was a stick shift vehicle, that was actually found in neutral yesterday when they pulled it out.  He didn’t have full coverage on it either, so it looks like it rolled into the water on its own.”

Submitted by Tina Bowles:  We have the house on the point with the tall lighthouse..in the cove near Goose Neck Point. On November 23, 2008, I took video and still photos of 8 Bald Eagles together on the ice near Goose Neck point. It was amazing! We saw 2 together on the ice in 2007 (I have on video) and frequently see Bald Eagles in front of our house. We had an immature Bald Eagle sitting on the ground out on our hill last spring. I thought it was a Golden Eagle because it did not have a white head and tail. However, I looked it up on the Internet and found that instead it was an immature Bald Eagle. I do believe that is what I filmed today.
