Grand’s Feathered Friends
Since its creation in 1935, GRDA has served as a conservation and reclamation district for the waters of the Grand River. Though it is a designation that encompasses broad responsibilities, wildlife protection has always been a priority.
Whether they have fins, fur or feathers, the wildlife and waterfowl which make their home along the Grand River shorelines and lakes are not only an important part of the ecosystem, but also a welcomed sight for thousands of human lake area visitors each year. According to the National Audubon Society, wildlife related recreation has become one of the most popular outdoor activities in the United States in recent years. Certainly, it is a popular activity in the GRDA lakes area.
Safety Inspection – Boats kept or operated on GRDA lakes may be inspected by GRDA Police. A safety inspection sticker will be placed on the port front portion of boat. This is a free inspection.
