Landscape Stewardship Plan for Barry, Calhoun and Kalamazoo Counties

This Landscape Stewardship Plan covers Barry, Calhoun and Kalamazoo Counties and is part of a larger project funded by a U.S. Forest Service grant administered by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. This is a region with a landscape composed of a mixed land use with forests, cropland, wetlands, and urban areas. It includes major portions of the Kalamazoo and Thornapple River Watersheds along with smaller sections of the Gun, Paw Paw, Upper Grand and St. Joseph Rivers. Well-managed land provides an economic base for the region with agriculture, recreation, and tourism; improves quality of life; and allows residents to enjoy sense of place.
