Michigan Riparian

As our beautiful lake starts to wake up for the season, and docks start to appear on the shores, it might be a good time to remind you all about a wonderful resource available to all riparians.  The Michigan Riparian Foundation, located in Stanton, MI, has been putting out a quality magazine dedicated to all things lake related since 1977.  What’s more, there’s an online archive of all their past issues, which is a veritable treasure trove of fascinating material.  Even better, however, is a subscription to the magazine, which for a nominal fee of $14 per year brings you the very latest news and advice regarding lake living.  Think of it as an investment in a worthwhile organization .. with the added benefit of a magazine!

Just browsing through the Summer 2015 issue I can see articles such “Starry stonewort: Essential Information for Lakefront Property Owners”, “Golf Cart News” (which clarifies the legal use of golf carts on public roads), and “What’s Happening Upstream? Results from an intensive two-year assessment of Lake Charlevoix tributaries”.  There’s much much more, of course. Take my advice and take a moment out of your busy day to visit the Michigan Riparian Foundation.  You won’t be sorry you did.
