This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
Some 7th graders dream of sending their stuffed animals into space, the 7th graders at Cornerstone Christian school actually did it for their 7th grade science project. The goal: To test The effects of Altitude on air pressure and temperature. The result: inspiration, learning, and a very cool video.
