Sunset on Wall Lake


Est. 1961


As some of you have heard, your Greater Wall Lake Association (GWLA) has purchased the property that was in foreclosure on M-43.  This purchase fits within our mission to preserve and protect Wall Lake.  This property has the possibility for a potential public launch site or other commercial development.  By purchasing it, we have removed a threat to our lake. 

Most of our funding source was from our Preservation Fund at the Barry Community Foundation.  We are now asking you to consider a donation to rebuild that fund so we will have a “war chest” ready for the next threat to our lake.

We encourage all Wall Lake residents, and those interested in preserving the natural environment, to support this fund that continues its efforts to safe guard our lake.  To do so, please remit your tax deductible donation payable to the Barry Community Foundation and note that it is for the Wall Lake Preservation Fund.

Update: THANK YOU!  to all who donate to the Preservation Fund.  In the ultimate sign of approval of the board of directors actions, all the funds (and a little more) that the GWLA used to purchase this property has been replace by our generous Wall Lake neighbors.  We still like to build this fund some more for the next time we need it.  It is good to be prepare for what may happen sometime in the future.

For the Channel before the Dam

The work to clean up the channel still has not been done, and the drain commissioner is actively working on this.  With all that is going on at this time, we truly hope he can get this completed this year.

Shallow Lake culvert improvements. Easements are in place. 

Permitting, public review and comment periods need to be completed,

then actual work to be scheduled - that likely all translates to this Fall, again.
