Michigan Islands Wilderness

Six small islands in Lake Huron were established as Michigan Islands  National Wildlife Refuge in 1943, and three of these islands have been  designated Wilderness: Pismire, Scarecrow, and Shoe. At seven acres,  Scarecrow Island is the largest of the three Wilderness isles, which  together form one of the smallest units of the National Wilderness  Preservation System. Large submerged limestone shoals located offshore  protect a shoreline of rock and cobble. Several colonial bird species -  great blue heron, black-crowned night-heron, herring gull, ring-billed  gull, great black-backed gull, common tern, Caspian tern, and  double-crested cormorant - nest on these islands in substantial numbers. Standing dead green ash trees are the main vegetation, with a lush  understory of common elderberry, scattered red-osier dogwood, and an  abundance of "weedy" plants. The death of the ash has been blamed on the extensive use by cormorants. In order to protect nesting birds, public  visitation is prohibited during breeding periods.
