About the Observation Platform
Built with U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service funds with the cooperation of the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the platform is maintained by the city of Alma.
In 1998, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was awarded a challenge grant to
expand the Watchable Wildlife platform at Riecks Lake. Contributions from
individuals and area businesses met the challenge grant award resulting in the
doubling of platform space. Both of these platforms are handicapped accessible.
