Traverse Bay Chapter Adopts Road

Traverse Bay Chapter Adopts Road

The Traverse Bay Chapter of the MWTHA adopted a stretch of highway M-66 between County Road 620 and Bundy Hill Road in Antrim County. This is a known wild turkey area where there are several feeding locations.

Our first pick up was in September, our next is in April 2010 prior to the start of the 2010 wild turkey season, and we hope everyone will come out to join us and let travelers on M-66 know that MWTHA cares about our environment! If you’re interested in participating in the spring cleanup, please contact Linda Gallagher.

Public comment sought on forest land for golf course deal

State Senator John Gleason (D-Flushing) is seeking public comment on a bill that would force the DNR to sell forest land to a private developer. Now is the time to act in order to prevent this bill from passing, as time is of the essence. 

As mentioned in our MWTHA poll, The Turkey Call, the Michigan Senate is now considering a bill (HB 5058) that would force the DNR to sell 475 acres of the AuSable State Forest to a private developer. The DNR is opposed to this type of deal, and if enacted, would set a dangerous precedent.
