Highway Marker Recognizes Saved Species

There's a new way to celebrate the efforts to save a Northern Michigan species from extinction. The new historical marker is recognizing the Kirtland Warbler's comeback. The highway marker is at a rest stop at I-75 and US-127 near Grayling. The Kirtland Warbler nearly died out in the 1970's and this new marker recognizes the efforts to save the species. Government agencies and non-profit groups worked together to save the songbird. The Kirtland Warbler is one of the world's rarest birds.
