Late last night we received word from Lansing that the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund has included Hunter's Point in the final recommendations for the legislature, clearing the way for approval of the purchase sometime in 2005. See the official press release on the What'sUP page.

A special thanks to all of the Pasty Cam Watchers who have been donating toward the matching grant required to obtain the funding, which is closing in on the goal. For more information see the Hunter's Point Website (hosted courtesy of Pasty.NET).

One of my favorite places on the whole planet is almost safe
from development.

That is fantastic news. Its one of my favorite places too.

Great news! And I'm sure you people at Pasty made a big difference with individual contributions. I know I would not even have known about this if it weren't for this site.

We just walked out along the point this past autumn. It's a beautiful and special place. This is good news indeed.

By Tim, West Palm Beach FL on Thursday, December 9, 2004 - 11:07 am:

Awesome news! I applaude all who have been ever diligent in their efforts to protect this beautiful piece of land.

Cool News!

I wish I was there instead of Denver.

By Herb_NW_Wis on Thursday, December 9, 2004 - 12:10 pm:

I've never been out there on Hunter's Point, but I'll bet it's
nice. I wonder if there are any archeological sites there?
Native American and early mining sites?

Who owns Porter's Island? Wasn't that were the first
mineral agency office was located in 1843 or 1844?

By Herb_NW_Wis on Thursday, December 9, 2004 - 12:11 pm:

I should add that Porter's Island is just off the picture to
the right end of Hunter's Point.

By SarahK, MI troll in FL on Thursday, December 9, 2004 - 02:11 pm:

could someone show me where that is via a map, like you did the other day?

Nice Job, Dad. Your whole effort to get this done, and

Congratulations to Grant Township, Copper Harbor,
and everyone who worked hard and contributed their
support toward the preservation of Hunter's Point! What
an enormous and wonderful undertaking to ensure that
beautiful rock beach will be there for everyone to enjoy
forever. And I'm so proud of Dick and Sharon Powers
for spending their "retirement" working tirelessly for
Hunter's Point - thank you!

Yup, that's Rich. I followed the Hunters Point link and saw the photo caption there.
