On Forest Haven Road by M-22, through stone gates and into the forest, lays the Glen Arbor Township Cemetery. 

 

But in 2015 a storm brought down surrounding trees, leaving the cemetery difficult to reach and in need of some TLC. 

 

That’s where Linda Dewey comes in. She partnered with Glen Lake Schools and a tree company to do some work at the cemetery. 

 

From there, it was discovered that the cemetery is owned by Glen Arbor Township, and is not the property of National Parks, as originally thought.

 

Dewey sat down with IPR’s Kendra Carr to discuss the partnership and the recent discovery.
