Yellow Dog group plans hike

MARQUETTE — The Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve invites the public to its newest parcel, a pristine wetland that forms part of the headwaters of Andersen Creek.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, botanist Steve Garske will introduce the public to the Christ Andersen Headwaters Preserve, which features a fen and sedge meadow complex with high biodiversity and ecosystem integrity due to its remote location and limited historic disruption.

This inaugural hike is sponsored by the Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve, North Woods Native Plant Society and the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition.

Participants should a bag lunch and meet at Cram’s General Store parking lot along County Road 550 in Big Bay at 11 a.m. The event is free but registration is required. Visit bit.ly/3zr5wCC to register.
