Project Summary

The grantee states, the Baldwin River is a significant tributary to the Pere Marquette River, and hosts steelhead, salmon, and brown trout. Through this project CRA and partners will work with an engineering team on design and permits to remove the infrastructure of a deteriorating dam and former fish farm on the Baldwin River, restore a healthy stream channel, incorporate the parallel effort of reconstructing the nearby state-owned railroad trail bridge and install a seasonal sea lamprey barrier.
