Michigan Lighthouse Service

 

Michigan's lights are worth saving. These beacons guided countless mariners safely through the Great Lakes and are steeped in history and stories. Michigan's off shore islands also provide habitat for migrating birds and there are countless stories from past light keepers who witnessed incredible migrations through these important islands.
