TRENTON, Mich. - BASF Corp. is donating $10,000 to the International Wildlife Refuge Alliance to help the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge.
The Refuge Alliance's Chairman Dick Micka says in a statement that the non-profit will use the money to strengthen partnerships to protect, conserve and manage the Detroit River refuge's wildlife and habitats as well as to create conservation, recreational and educational experiences.
The funding being announced Tuesday is the latest effort by BASF to support the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge. The chemical company's efforts since 2001 have included helping to restore a 1,200-acre island and creating habitat for walleye, bass, and lake sturgeon.
The Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge includes thousands of acres along 48 miles of the lower Detroit River and western Lake Erie.
