Manistee County is using its rivers, streams, inland lakes and Lake Michigan to become “a global destination.” Explore the Shores is a series of places throughout the county that provide hands-on opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to learn about water stewardship and explore nature.
The vision of Explore the Shores is to make Manistee County the world’s premier destination for water-related activities. The plan is to develop 50 places by 2020 that will provide universal access and attract 1 million new visitors to rivers, streams and lakes.
Three grants from Great Lakes Fishery Trust were recently received totaling over $329,000 for three new sites to support universal access for people to fish for salmon and trout on the Manistee River and the outlet of Bar Lake on Lake Michigan.
