COPPER HARBOR -- Copper Harbor residents Dick Powers and Alex Protzel will lead a guided hike of Hunter’s Point from the trail head at the Copper Harbor Marina at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 9.  The relatively easy hike should last between one and one and a half hours. Refreshments will be available. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is holding a Statewide Marina Open House at the Marina between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday. Visitors are welcome to tour the Marina and check out the amenities offered.

"Hunter's Point is a prime location to observe natural history, birds, plants and animals, excellent geology structure, and whatever else these beveled edges are inclined to reveal to the visitor." -- Description by the late Jim Rooks, naturalist and eco-tour guide.
