The West Michigan Shoreline Regional Development Commission and the Muskegon Lake Watershed Partnership (MLWP) completed a large-scale fish and wildlife improvement project to restore habitat along the Lake's shoreline and stream corridors. In partnership with the Muskegon River Watershed Assembly, GVSU-Annis Water Resources Institute, Timberland Area Council and Muskegon Community College, scientific information and community values are being combined to set restoration targets.
