In partnership with St. Clair County, Six Rivers Land Conservancy is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Way Parcel, a 39-acre wooded property adjacent to Goodells Park in Wales Township.  With financing assistance from The Conservation Fund, Six Rivers will hold the parcel while the St. Clair County Parks Commission waits for approval of a Michigan Natural Resource Trust Fund Grant.  Conservation of the piece is significant, especially the southern portion which is part of the Pine River watershed and stream channel.

Rover Pipeline

The ET ROVER Pipeline has altered its proposed route so that the Lost Lake Nature Preserve and other sensitive locations in the Six Rivers' service area will not be affected.

Executive Director Chris Bunch testified before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in December regarding the potential impact of the pipeline route. In response to the February 2nd news of the change, Chris said, "We appreciated the helpfulness of Rover reps and were grateful for their willingness to work with us. We believe this a great outcome that will benefit the properties we protect, reduce impacts on the environment, and provide for the growing demand for natural gas to replace coal in power plants." 

The Rover pipeline will now utilize existing Vector pipeline, operated by DTE Energy, and avoid new construction in 6 Michigan counties

Six Rivers rarely gets involved in public policy.  Our mission and work is accomplished through the voluntary action of private landowners.  But over the last many months there have been several legislative issues at both state and federal levels that have major implications for conservation locally and nationally.

Lansing has been a busy place lately, with many items in committee that are of great concern and consequence for Six Rivers' work. Chris Bunch continues to work with our partners at Heart of the Lakes Center for Land Conservation to make the voice for land conservation is southeast Michigan heard.
