Grant to protect Barry County's High Bank Creek Property

June 20, 2019by ncdea

MICHIGAN, Barry CD – A 140-acre property with 4,000 feet of frontage on High Bank Creek, a tributary of the Thornapple River in Barry County, will be protected by the Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy after it has received a $116,000 grant from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (DEGLE).

“Conserving this land is important to preventing erosion issues that occur with residential or other types of development,” says Barry Conservation District Executive Director Sarah Nelson. “As the name indicates, the banks on this portion of the creek are extremely high and therefore especially vulnerable to erosion.”
