Jay has been with the Michigan DNR for 17 years. He was a fisheries biologist for six of those years and the Southwest Michigan Regional manager for the last eleven years.
Jay will discuss the Westrate Property on the Dowagiac Creek to see if there is interest in a partnership if the State of Michigan purchases the property. This is a property and creek the SJRVFF knows well and has done extensive habitat work throughout.
Jay will also give an update on the St. Joseph River Fish Ladders, trout stocking, and then open the
floor for questions and discussion.
