December Holiday Party
FoBR Quick River Updates
- Today, the Boyne River Sparkles! Thanks to the August 24 Northern MI River Sweep and FoBR leader Adam Kennedy with his volunteers, the Boyne River and its pathways are much cleaner. Yesterday, Adam’s team collected and disposed of ~150 pounds of river debris. The Boyne River, its occupants and visitors say THANK YOU!
- Boyne River to Get Crowd Source Monitoring! Later this year, five water level monitoring sites will be set up on the Boyne. This project is a collaborative effort with the USGS Michigan Water Science Center, University of Buffalo, Boyne Outfitters, and FoBR. For more info, see www.crowdhydrology.org
- Boyne River Erosion Control Plan Takes Shape! FoBR’s Darryl Parish has started identifying and prioritizing bank erosion sites downstream from the Dam. If left unchecked, bank erosion can destroy important fish habitat and reproductive cycles. The project goal is to review and propose cost effective action steps to repair each significant erosion site.
- Three New FoBR Directors On Board! At the 2013 Annual Meeting, FoBR welcomed three new Board members: Mike Durbin, Steve Sawyer and Jerry Swift. Also noted was FoBR’s sincere appreciation to outgoing Directors Suzie Dickow and John Connor.
