The Superior Watershed Partnership worked with the DeVos Museum and NMU art students to create something using old materials. The students disassembled an old row boat and created a turtle. It was then taken to Teal Lake near Marquette and left on the ice for viewing. In the spring the turtle sunk to the bottom once the ice melted. It then became an important fish habitat.
This is just one example of the many ways the SWP partners with a variety of groups to achieve its mission.
