Assistant Secretary of the Interior Tours Funded Michigan Sites

 Her trip highlights investments made through the America the Beautiful grants.

Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks Shannon Estenoz recently spent the past three days touring Michigan sites that received funding through America the Beautiful grants. Assistant Secretary Estenoz was joined by members of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission as she traveled to Ann Arbor, a number of rivers, and the Sea Lamprey Control Centre in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario.

A primary goal of the conservation efforts at these locations is to preserve fish life, breeding, and migration in the Great Lakes. Nearly 200 miles of rivers have had stream barriers removed, reconnecting fragmented ecosystems to support the living areas of native fish. A number of facilities also maintain partnerships with Canadian conservationists to mutually care for the native species that live in the Great Lakes’ border waters.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Assistant Secretary Estenoz as she assesses infrastructure updates and maintenance.
  • For Interior Secretary Deb Haaland to seek God’s guidance as she heads her department.
