The Conservation Resource Alliance is gearing up for a busy year of restoration in the Pere Marquette Watershed.
The Pere Marquette River is a state designated Natural River and Blue Ribbon Trout Stream, and federally recognized Wild and Scenic River. The Pere Marquette flows through the Huron-Manistee National Forest, and has no dams on its mainstem.
The watershed encompasses an area of 755 square miles and contains 380 miles of stream including 69.4 miles of mainstem. The watershed is comprised of five major streams including the mainstem, Baldwin River, Middle Branch, Little South Branch, and Big South Branch, and over 75 small feeder creeks.
