Higgins Lake Nursery and Civilian Conservation Corps Museum
The Higgins Lake Nursery operated from 1903 to 1965. It began as an experiment in reforestation and became one of the world’s largest pine nurseries, laying the foundation for a successful state forest system. In the 1930s, more than 100,000 Michigan men were enrolled in the federal Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps. They performed a variety of conservation and reforestation projects around the state, doing decades worth of work in just 9 years.
Admission is free; however, a Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry to the grounds.
