Au Train Lake Fish Habitat Enhancement Project

Mar 04, 2023 10:00AM—3:00PM


Northern Nights Resort – N6684 Autrain Forest Lake Rd, Au Train, MI 49806


Join us on Saturday, March 4, 2023 for a volunteer stewardship day at Au Train Lake in Alger County. Volunteers are needed from 10am-3pm on Saturday to help create brush bundles/course woody debris structures that will later be deployed throughout the lake, helping to boost fish populations.

This project is part of a larger initiative that aims to collaborate with various partners to enhance aquatic habitat and boost fish populations at Au Train Lake. Project partners include UP RC&D Council, Alger Conservation District, DNR Fisheries Division, Hiawatha National Forest, MUCC OTG, MSU Extension, and Alger County Road Commission.

This project will require moderate physical activity and the use of non-powered hand tools. All equipment and on-site training in how to create brush bundles will be provided. Attendees will also learn how they can improve and enhance shoreline habitat on their own land. All ages and skill levels are encouraged to attend. Free lunch and a volunteer appreciation gift will be provided to all registered volunteers. Please register for this event at the link above!

Meeting location: Northern Nights Resort – N6684 Autrain Forest Lake Rd, Au Train, MI 49806

Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to sign-in.

Things to bring with you to the volunteer day: warm clothes and extra layers, waterproof boots. Optional: a reusable water bottle and a camp chair to use during lunch.
