Michigan's lone wolverine headed to State CapitolFor more than two-hundred years, the last known sighting of a wolverine in Michigan was commonly believed to be around the turn of the 18th century. That all changed on February 24, 2004, when two coyote hunters spotted a female wolverine in Huron County.
During most of her life spent in Sanilac County, she was tracked and extensively photographed by local science teacher Jeff Ford until found deceased in March 2010. Forever preserved by Bay Port taxidermist Sandy Brown, the wolverine exhibit has been traveling the state since first being unveiled in the Bay and Thumb areas in early 2012.
On Tuesday, March 12 at 9:30a.m., I will be joined by DNR Director Keith Creagh and other state leaders in unveiling the impressive exhibit in the Rotunda of the State Capitol building where she will be displayed through March 15.

March 18th Town Hall on the low water levels of the Great Lakes and the Saginaw BayThe low water levels of the Great Lakes and the Saginaw Bay and their impact on our region will be the focus of a March town hall meeting I am hosting with special guest speaker Jon Allan, director of the Michigan Office of the Great Lakes.
The event is scheduled for Thursday, March 18 beginning at 6 p.m. in the Davidson Room of the Double Tree Hotel, Bay City. The meeting is open to the public at no charge.
Low water levels affect every Michigander and impact our natural resources, environment, quality of life and the economy in substantial ways. I look forward to elevating this issue in the public discussion and leading related legislative action over the coming months.
