Please Take Care of Breakers

The North Canal Township Park is what we call “Breakers.” Breakers is unique in that the beach was partly formed due to the result of local mining and is made up largely of stamp sand. Breakers is very popular for students at Michigan Tech – the drive out is nice and it seems like there’s always some group having a bonfire. But we must also be good stewards of the park. Here are a few tips to help us all continue to enjoy Breakers…

  • Pack it in, pack it out
  • Leave it better than you found it
  • Let the wildlife be
  • Be prepared
  • Think about your impact
  • Be courteous to others
