Fund For Lake Michigan

Adaptive Management in Three Bridges Park

  • Grant Recipient: UEC MVP Project, Inc.
  • Amount: $40,000
  • Year: 2014
  • Watershed: Menomonee River
  • Focus Area: Stream Restoration

This grant builds on the Fund’s earlier investments in Three Bridges Park, a popular 24-acre Milwaukee city park opened in 2013 in the Menomonee Valley on the site of a former abandoned railyard. In this phase of the project, UEC/MVP will support the initial installation of a riparian buffer on the riverbank by establishing native vegetation in the restored area; partners will also implement water quality, floristic, and soil monitoring to inform future management strategies.
