      Hungarian Falls acquired by Keweenaw Land Trust

      A piece of Michigan's far north is being saved for the ages. The Keweenaw Land Trust has acquired a 10-acre parcel that includes Hungarian Falls, a site popular with generations of area residents. The site is just north of Lake Linden in Houghton County. The Daily Mining Gazette of Houghton ( http://bit.ly/17pOgbg ) says the trust plans to keep the site open to the public while making changes that include adding picnic tables and signs. The land trust held a dedication ceremony Saturday to mark the acquisition of the land from the Torch Lake Area Fire Protection Authority. Trust director Evan McDonald says a design team from Michigan Technological University is assessing the land and will recommend different approaches for managing it.
