Temporary Swan Song for Swan Lake

While the flood waters have receded, the clean up and damage repair continues.
Due to the power of the recent flooding on the Grand River, Swan Lake Wildlife Refuge is closed to the public until further notice for clean up and repairs. The only exception is the Taylor Point Access.
Refuge Manager Steve Whitson says there was substantial damages to the visitors facilities and other infrastructure.
Whitson says most of the public access roads have been washed out at numerous places and gravel has been washed away from many of the road.
The Visitors Center and Headquarters Office were flooded and are closed. A temporary headquarters office is being set up in the old bunkhouse near the headquarters.
Staff from two refuges in the state are assisting with clean up and repairs.
The July First Friday event has been cancelled.
