Take a ride along on the Upper Boardman River just 8 miles south of Traverse City, Michigan to see the fantastic river that has returned since the removal of the Brown Bridge Dam last Spring. This river has been underneath Brown Bridge Pond. The length of these videos requires that we put them in three separate sections.


The river is still fairly sterile this Fall. As woody debris and invertebrates re-inhabit the river, fish will return. Spring runoff will also help to reintroduce new life.


This great video was produced by the BOARDMAN RIVER CLEAN SWEEP, a non-profit advocate group for the Boardman.
