One of the pleasurable tasks of the Michigan Historical Commission is to review and approve State Historical Markers. Tomorrow, as folks make their way up I-75 and US-127 to the DRC Mackinac conference, they have, just south of Grayling, the opportunity to pay a visit to the second of the Michigan Conservation Trail markers.
This cool marker celebrates -- not all markers are able to be so celebratory -- the effort to save the Kirtland Warbler from extinction. The marker is conveniently located at the rest area on the east side of I-75 north of exit/mile marker 251. You won't be able to miss it.
