The Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative could not be as successful as it is without the dedicated support from all of our partners, including schools, government agencies, non profits, and businesses. They are the people that make these projects happen! Click the link below to see a list of all the partners involved in NEMI GLSI.

Pine River Van Etten Lake (PRVEL) Watershed Coalition

Pine River Van Etten Lake (PRVEL) Watershed Coalition
P.O. Box 680
Oscoda, MI 48750

The Pine River-Van Etten Lake (PRVEL) Watershed Coalition was formed in 1999 to address water quality concerns in the watershed

Since 2003 the PRVEL Coalition continues to hold quarterly meetings that are open to the public. In 2008, the Steering Committee partnership agreement was changed to make those meetings coincide with the Coalition’s. The Coalition advertises the meetings in the local newspaper and invites resource professionals to give presentations on current resource management in the watershed. Recent presentations have included updates on fish passage and dam management, fisheries and stocking, road/ stream crossing repairs, and greenbelting and volunteer opportunities.

Members of the PRVEL Coalition also perform regular E. coli and macroinvertebrate monitoring. The Coalition was recently granted funding from the MiCorps monitoring program and in 2008 will begin taking the first data for that program with the help of local volunteers and the Oscoda High School science classes.
