By: Andie Balenger, Daily Press

CEDAR RIVER — Collaborative efforts are being made in Cedar River to help restore the sturgeon population in Lake Michigan. Members of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) and the US Fish and Wildlife Service have been caring for 164 sturgeon, which currently vary in length from four to five inches, since the first week of May. Located at a streamside rearing facility along the Cedar River, which is funded in part by the Fox River Green Bay Natural Resource Trustee Council, the sturgeons’ caretakers are gearing up for their eventual release at the end of August.
