GREAT NEWS! The Discovery Center website is now operational and really professional. Check it out at www.pigeonriverdiscoverycenter.org
The Discovery Center will open May 26 on Memorial Day weekend! For more information go to their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Pigeon-River-Discovery-Center
We need your help. Please make a donation to support the Discovery Center and exhibits.
While we are really excited about the soon to be opened Discovery Center, we are still committed to the preservation of the wild characteristics of the Pigeon River Country. So we encourage everyone to come to the Garlic Mustard Invasive Plant Day on May X. We are providing food for those who come to remove this invasive plant from Elk Hill.
Wait! Two feet of snow can make a difference! Not even an invasive like Garlic Mustard can grow. So the date for the Garlic Mustard Invasive Plant Day has been changed to May 19. But please do come out for a morning of work and an afternoon of enjoyment of the Pigeon River Country with lunch provided!
We have exciting news! John Walters who has been chairing the Pigeon River Country Advisory Council for many years is no longer doing that.
Why? Well he has been named to the Michigan Natural Resources Commission!! So now we know that the State has a true conservationist on the NRC and the Pigeon River Country has a commissioner that truly knows the PRC. In fact the Picture of the Month on this page was taken by John on a recent aerial elk viewing mission.
