Portage Lake Watershed Forever is excited to celebrate ten years of watershed protection, and to kick off the update of our watershed protection plan!

Nearly a decade ago, members of the Onekama community realized that the natural resources of the Portage Lake watershed needed protection. What resulted was the development of the Portage Lake Watershed Forever Plan and the creation of this watershed group. The 2008 watershed plan describes steps that should be taken to guide management of the watershed in order to preserve and enhance it and can be found here.

It is now time to assess and reflect upon the accomplishments of the past ten years, to identify new community priorities and challenges, and create an updated guide for next decade of watershed stewardship. This is a community-driven process, and we need your help!
