We are a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization whose vision is the preservation of the Yellow Dog River and surrounding area in Northern Marquette County of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The Yellow Dog is a wild trout stream that flows through miles of undeveloped wilderness and supports many rare species – the moose, the wolf, and the peregrine falcon to name a few. Picture cascading waterfalls, great fishing and a wonderful back country for hiking. This is the Yellow Dog and our goal is to keep it as pristine as possible.


Preserving the Yellow Dog Watershed in its most natural state for the use of the public, now, and for the benefit of future generations.
