NORTHERN MICHIGAN (WPBN/WGTU) -- The Department of Natural Resources has received $10,000 to help restore a northern Michigan fish population.

Rotary Charities of Traverse City awarded the grant in support of the state's Arctic Grayling.

The $10,000 will support grant research and writing by NorthSky Nonprofit Network, a management support organization administered through Rotary Charities.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for our organizations to be a catalyst for what we hope will be the historic return of the grayling to northern Michigan streams,” said Marsha Smith, executive director of Rotary Charities. “We are impressed by the scale of this partnership. This kind of collaboration is exactly what will generate important solutions for our region and all of Michigan.”

This stage of the initiative is expected to last for five years.
