Porcupine Run

Presque Isle County


Porcupine Run was donated to Headwaters in 2022.


The property is located on Lake Nettie Road, just south of County Road 638.  The land is hilly and forested; it’s valleys drain towards Lake Nettie.  There is a small wetland complex in the southern portion of the property with tag alder and swamp conifers that acts as a filter for spring snowmelt and rain. Preserving this land keeps wildlife habitat intact, and helps maintain the water quality of Lake Nettie and the Ocqueoc River watershed.
