Crewmembers aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Hollyhock, homeported in Port Huron, Michigan, use an oil-skimming device to recover peat moss, acting as a substitute for spilled oil, near Mackinac Island.

The crew of the Hollyhock is participating in a project led by the Coast Guard's Research and Development Center, showcasing techniques for removing spilled oil from a frozen environment.
