It’s been such a busy August! Decorated docks, abandoned docks, golf … great fun, great community spirit and a positive impact on our lake environment

Abandoned Dock Program

Over the years it seems that there are more and more docks pulled up on MNR Big Hawk Lake and Little Hawk Lake shorelines that appeared to be abandoned.
