Saving a Gift of Nature

Grand Marais Harbor & Breakwall Restoration Project

Grand Marais has been the site of a beautiful natural harbor for hundreds of years, sheltering ships from harsh Lake Superior storms.

And now...

The Harbor needs YOUR HELP


There is only one solution to save the harbor at Grand Marais. A new breakwall MUST be constructed and soon. Time is running out! Estimates are that the harbor will be gone in 3 – 5 years. That cannot be allowed to happen. The Burt Township Board has passed three resolutions over the last few years. They are below. Also below is a proposal to build the Breakwall submitted by Tom Newhof of Prein/Newhof Engineering firm of Grand Rapids, MI. This is the goal the people of Grand Marais are working to achieve.

Harbor Resolution – 1995

Harbor Resolution – 2001

Harbor Resolution – 2007
