MUSKEGON, MI – Standing guard at the crests of Lake Michigan and along the many miles of  the area’s sandy beaches, lighthouses are the heartbeat of West Michigan.

On Thursday, March 5, the Michigan Lighthouse Conservancy is set to host the Muskegon South Pierhead Light Community Engagement Meeting, a community-wide and informal discussion about the future of the area’s lighthouses. The event runs from 5:30-7 p.m. at the United Way of the Lakeshore, 31 E. Clay Ave, in Muskegon.
