We belong to the Michigan Loon Preservation Association and you may consider joining also. They provide valuable loon information. Read more of Loon Nesting Program »

Boat Ramp Maintenance
DLIA members volunteer to monitor and maintain the condition of the township boat ramp. Contact Stuart Case to volunteer.
– Power Loading causes damage to launch ramps. –
In addition to Mother Nature’s work, power loading causes damage to the launch area. “Power loading” is using the boat motor to load and unload a boat onto and off the trailer. The propeller wash creates a hole at the end of the ramp and a sand mound beyond the ramp. It creates hazardous conditions, and will cause time consuming and expensive ramp repairs.
