If you are buying your annual boat launch permit, please consider a donation to the William G. Jackson Muskegon Lake Research Fund.
This Fund, managed by the Community Foundation for Muskegon County, supports the work of Grand Valley State University’s Annis Water Resource Institute (AWRI) in monitoring Muskegon Lake. Decades of industrial use along the shoreline, years before state and federal clean water laws went on the books, have left a legacy of environmental damage. Some of this degradation is well documented and has led to Muskegon Lake being listed as an Area of Concern (AOC) by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Muskegon Lake is one of 42 AOC’s within the Great Lakes.
Grand Valley’s AWRI is committed to documenting the lake’s health, both today and into the future. Your donation to the William G. Jackson Muskegon Lake Research Fund will help to support this important work in making Muskegon Lake healthier for everyone’s lifelong benefit and enjoyment.
