The Isinglass River Local Advisory Committee (IRLAC) may be small, but they have been very busy over the past year! They updated their Isinglass River Corridor Management Plan, and then revised their website to host the new plan and highlight the important aspects of the plan in an easy-to-use format on the site.

IRLAC’s updated website is located at http://www.isinglassriver.us/, and the 2018 Isinglass River Corridor Management Plan can be found either on the site, or here under the Management Plans tab.

Well done, IRLAC!
