    "These Flats provide a replacement home for waterfowl and other wetland species which once abounded in area Marshlands before settlements. Major assistance in managing this vital resource is provided by Michigan Conservtion Foundation Houghton Lake".
    The HOUGHTON LAKE FLATS were located on the western edge of Houghton Lake, Michigan's largest inland lake and just south of the town of Higgins Lake. It was a peaceful, beautiful spot, home to ducks, geese, great blue herons, black terns, osprey and bald eagles.
