THE CONCEPT

'Guppy Lake' is located north of Ann Arbor,

near Greenbush, Michigan and includes about 70 acres

of ponds and surrounding marsh and woodland.

The Guppy Lake Restoration Foundation (GLRF; non-profit organization) was founded by Dr. Nathaniel Borenstein in 1999. The main goal is for the GLRF to become a retreat for religious groups of all kinds to come together to study and learn from each other and find common-ground. Another one of its goals is to preserve the land that it is on for wildlife.

The GLRF is in the early planning stages and it is possible for us to have a role in getting it going.

The GLFRF site was used as an illegal

dump for many years during a period of

absentee ownership.

Trash that must be removed includes:

scrap metal, old tires, old machine parts,

old refrigerators, old car batteries, fencing

wire, spools of industrial wire, insulation,

carpet scraps, chemically-treated

lumber (that may not be burned), glass

bottles, cans, and other miscellaneous items.

MULTI-YEAR OBJECTIVES

1) survey the land for trash to be removed,

and make a map of the area showing

property lines and significant landmarks

2) clean up all trash that can be taken out

by hand on the 70-acre tract of GLRF land,

by organizing small crews and working with

them to haul trash to rented dumpsters. We

will be making as many trips as necessary to

meet this goal.

3) Survey Flora and Fauna and make plan

for removal of invasive species.

4) Make Plan for Main Lodge and

make plans for the continuation and

expansion of GLRF into multi-religious

retreat.

Work gloves, sturdy boots, full length

pants,and long sleeve shirts will be required

to be worn by all workers. There will be a

first-aid kit on hand at all times.

Before any trips occur, I and the head

injury with such details such as contacting

parents, next of kin, guardians and

transportation plans the nearest medical

facility.
