The Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve will host two events this fall to celebrate the Yellow Dog River and the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. First, on October 20th, chairman, Chauncey Moran, will lead a 12-14 mile hike through the McCormick Wilderness Area to Bulldog Lake, the headwaters of the river. He and son Jeremiah scouted this route last year when they embarked on a several day walk of the entire length of the river, from Bulldog Lake to Lake Superior. Because of the rugged terrain and the fact that there is no trail, the October hike is limited to 10 participants, so register early to secure a spot by contacting rochelle@yellowdogwatershed.org.

Next will be our annual meeting at the Ore Dock in Marquette on November 7, 6pm -9pm. Everyone is welcome to celebrate with food, music, silent auction, film and the premier of the story map which highlights the designated wild portion of the Yellow Dog River.
