MI UP Land Deals Reached
This has triggered a series of land protection deals, big and small, between the State of Michigan, conservation groups, and International Paper (along with other holding groups). It's especially nice to hear that the Beta Gris area is getting some protection (I hadn't even heard that Hunter's Point was threatened, but it was clear even five years ago that Beta Gris was going to be destroyed if further development took place). At first glance, these deals appear to be very beneficial to those that enjoy the wonder that is the great outdoors of the Upper Peninsula.
