Pipelines and Preserves -UPDATED!!!

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

Southeast Michigan's Natural Heritage

Six Rivers Helps Secure Major New Nature Preserve!

Six Rivers helped Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy (SMLC ) acquire the new 538 acre Lost Lake Preserve in northern Oakland and southern Genesee counties.  Six Rivers holds a conservation easement on the preserve, which will be managed by SMLC.  An anonymous donor funded the acquisition.  The preserve can be seen between exit 106 and Baldwin Road on I-75.  It includes two lakes, wetlands, forest, remnant prairie and other habitat types.  The preserve will be opened to the public sometime in 2014 when access has been developed.

 ~ Help Us Protect the Nature near you ~

 Six Rivers Regional Land Conservancy is a non-profit conservation organization made up of members, donors and volunteers who believe it is important to sustain the quality and character of the natural resources that sustain us. We recognize and understand the value of an inviting landscape and a strong and vibrant natural resource base in our communities; it makes them attractive and healthy places to live and attracts people and institutions that create prosperity.

Toward that end, our work is with landowners who, on a voluntary basis, choose to take steps to protect their land and the integrity of the natural resources on it. For the most part our work is with private landowners who share these values for our natural heritage and choose to act on them in measurable, permanent ways. Though we are not a government or regulatory agency, on occasion they may have a role in a project we are involved in.

We also recognize that the opposite is true—when natural resources are degraded, our prosperity suffers. Similarly, public health and infrastructure costs increase.  For example treating the drinking water we all require or the discharges into the lakes and streams that provide recreation, beauty and fisheries. Our work supports vibrant and healthy economies, communities and natural resources. We invite you to join us as we work to sustain the best qualities of our region.
