Pokagon Health Services Healthy Lifestyles Campaign hosted the second annual Quadrathon on July 28 with more than a dozen teams. These adventurers completed the swim, bike, kayak route, and run as part of the only sprint quadrathon hosted in the United States. Participants were permitted to complete all the events as a solo competitor or by being part of a team. Team members completed one leg of the challenge and then cheered their friends and coworkers through the remaining events. The course was designed to use and highlight our Rodgers Lake property.

The Department of Natural Resources is starting a new volunteer program to assist in helping understand the fisheries in Pokagon Band lakes.
