The St. Joseph Bay Aquatic Preserve Management Plan was revised as of September 2008.
The preserve received vital input from both an advisory committee, developed for the purpose of updating
the plan, and the public. A draft plan was produced and made available to the public for review and comment
in early 2007. Throughout 2007 and 2008, improvements and updates were made. On August 15, 2008 the management
plan was approved by the Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC). After approval by ARC, the plan was
presented to and approved by the Governor and Cabinet on September 16, 2008.
