News about Hoyt Island: Removal of contamination on tiny 3-acre Hoyt Island has been completed! The contaminated soil and building debris have been “contained” and delivered to an EPA-approved site in Michigan. This project, first conceived in 2013, has been difficult and costly from the start. Fundraising for the extra costs identified in April and May is underway. Full habitat restoration of the island will be a priority in 2022. Of a $300,000 cost, $60,000 remains to be raised.

Contamination caused by fire 13 years ago will finally disappear from tiny Hoyt Island.
Tides, winds, and rain had to cooperate for this project.
