Monitoring and Research:

Thayer Lake is a small, shallow, biologically productive lake located in central Antrim County. The lake is located less than a mile south of Clam River, which flows between Clam Lake and Torch Lake. In fact, Thayer Lake is only a quarter mile east of Torch Lake.

Because Thayer Lake is shallow, it has a plethora of aquatic plants, none of which have been identified as invasive. These plants provide shelter and habitat for fish, crayfish, aquatic bugs, and other aquatic life.
