Reviews for Michigan Wildlife Habitat Foundation
Hello, My name is Wendy Retzloff and I vacation at my Parents home in Crystal Michigan at Loon Lake in which the lake is divided by land as someone has filled in the wetland part of the lake in which is just about dried up. The neighbor's have written many letters to the state regarding destruction of the lake to the state with no response. "Loon Lake" was know as home nesting grounds to Loons, Sand Crain's and Herrings which are no longer seen, raccoons scavenge the area eating turtles, clams and fish that no longer have water as the water continues to drain. This all has occurred over the past two years in which is devastating the area greatly. Now the new Drain Commissioner hired her Husband who does sewer and drain work and spent county funds and put in a new drain which is also making things so difficult it will be very hard to recover the loss of this huge area of wetland. It appears that just anyone can drain a wet land and get away with it. I have been coming to stay at this lake every summer since I was 16 years old and now 32 years later, I have watched in two years how fast a wet land can drain and kill a special area that I used to catch turtles and watch the loons and other wildlife nest and grow. No longer there for anyone's grandchildren to watch and learn. Please advise as to what to do?
