As part of a planned habitat restoration and improvement project, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources will be conducting a timber sale on the Gourdneck State Game Area in the City of Portage. The project location is east of Angling Road and south of West Centre Avenue. During winter 2019, loggers who have purchased the timber will harvest it under the supervision of the MDNR. This will involve felling certain trees and the use of heavy equipment and trucks to remove the wood. Watch the change as wildlife habitat improvements progress over the next few years. For more information, contact MDNR Wildlife Biologist Don Poppe at (269) 673-2430 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
