The state Department of Natural Resources is marking the completion of the Crisp Point project, an acquisition that includes 3,810 acres of forest land and more than 2 miles of Lake Superior shoreline.
A ceremony is next Thursday at the Crisp Point Lighthouse in northeastern Luce County. The 11 a.m. event is open to the public.
The Upper Peninsula acquisition was funded by a $4.5 million grant through the U.S. Forest Service's Forest Legacy Program and $1.5 million from a private donor.
The property includes bluffs, streams, an inland lake and sand dunes. It contains about 2.5 miles of a key northern U.P. snowmobile trial. The DNR says the land is expected to be a place for recreation including hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking, wildlife viewing and kayaking.
