Rebirth of the Pigeon River: A Conservation Story about Reconnecting Native Ecosystems Through Dam Removal and Invasive Species Management

The Pigeon River is a world-class stream: its clean, icy flows support a thriving coldwater ecosystem that includes brook trout, brown trout and steelhead. It is a designated Natural River and an all-around classic example of what a northern Michigan river should be. The surrounding forests are home to Michigan's elk herd along with countless other wildlife; recreationists and hunters from near and far tell stories of generations-deep connections to the area. No other site has divided the Pigeon River system like the Song of the Morning Dam. Presentation by Lisha Ramsdell and Jennifer Muladore of Huron Pines.
