Environmental Issues Forum: Coldwater River Restoration Update

Environmental Issues Forum: Coldwater River Restoration Update

Friday, October 13
at Barry Community Room in Hastings
Noon – 1 pm

In 2015, tree and woody debris removal on a 13 mile stretch of the Coldwater River from Jordan Lake to North Charlton Park Road resulted in erosion problems and bank destabilization. This forum will discuss two aspects of the Coldwater River restoration. Professor Erik Snyder and his students from Grand Valley State University will discuss their research documenting the current state of the river ecosystem and changes that have occurred as a result of management activities. Sam Pyle of the Coldwater River Watershed Council will provide an update on the present and future river restoration activities by the community and Council.

This forum will be held at the Barry Community Room, located at 231 S. Broadway in Hastings. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch.
