The Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund, a fund created and maintained by royalties paid by Michigan's oil and gas industry, provided a grant to help create a new greenspace park in Houghton.

"The purchase of this land will complete this nature area," said Houghton Assistant City Manager Ann Vollrath. "There are six lots adjoining this that had been donated by Marilyn Mason to the Copper Country Audubon previously, so they are all adjoining each other and now this makes a park of almost six acres right in the center of town."
