In 2001, the Berrien County Parks and Recreation Commission acquired 86 acres of upland and wetland habitats along the Galien River in New Buffalo Township. Today, those acres have turned into the impressive Galien River County Park at 17424 Red Arrow Hwy., New Buffalo. The wetlands are part of the larger New Buffalo Marsh — a Great Lakes marsh formed along the Galien River just upstream from the river’s mouth at Lake Michigan.

- Joshua Nowicki
Fly fishing in many ways is an art form. Like many arts, the basics can be learned quickly but the refinement and personalization are a lifelong passion that manifests in increasing finesse and elegance. Watching a well-seasoned angler cast can be mesmerizing. The flow of the line and lure through the air, and the way that they lightly and effortlessly land on the water, is beautiful. This lightness leads to a very natural presentation of the lure and is key to the success of this fishing style.

This heart-wrenching conflict never ended and still creates a volatile tension in global affairs.
