The Big Sable River Watershed

The Big Sable includes 24 miles of mainstem, numerous miles of tributaries, and the watershed covers 178 square miles.  The Big Sable flows through Lake and Mason Counties and empties into Hamlin Lake which is connected to Lake Michigan. 

The Big Sable River Watershed Committee formed in 2000 and is comprised of members of local, state, and federal governments, public and private organizations, sports clubs, private landowners, and other interested individuals.  The committee helps identify, prioritize, and implement conservation projects in the watershed and continues to encourage youth participation in outdoor activities.
