The Baraga Plains Wildlife Area is in the immediate area, and it is part of 142 ,900 acres of State owned land. This is an area of heavy lake effect snowfall from Lake Superior. The management unit supervises a 988 mile snowmobile trail network. Access to Trail No. 15, the Clowry-Nestoria Multi-Use State Trail is nearby. All of this system is groomed and maintained under eight grants to local snowmobile clubs or chambers of commerce. There is one ORV trail on the Baraga Plains, and several ORV routes on railroad grades nearby. There is a 5,000 acre area of jack pine near this parcel, in the Baraga Plains. Jack pine clear cuts and subsequent regeneration have resulted in large areas of young jack pine. These are attractive to Kirtland warblers, and they have nested here. This area is also a major Fly-Way for migrating geese and ducks. About five miles south-east of the property, is the historic Alberta Village. It was founded in 1936 by Henry Ford - At that time wood was used extensively in automobiles, and Ford declared the banks of the Plumbago Creek to be an ideal spot for a sawmill. Ford Motor Company donated the town of Alberta and 1,700 acres of surrounding land to the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science at Michigan Technological University. Alberta's buildings today are used as a museum, and support research and teaching programs for forestry and ecology majors, and are used by numerous universities from around the United States for forestry education.
