Sugar Island is a great place to go and view magnificent bird migrations, including the migratory snowy and great gray owls. The shoreline wetlands provide habitat for many kinds of wildlife, including mammals, fish, and birds. There are many resorts in town. Water quality tested as needed.
Recreational public beaches in Michigan are tested several times a week, typically from May to September. However, some beaches are tested bi-weekly or monthly.
Officially, the water should be clean for swimming from May 1 to October 31.
