Fund For Lake Michigan

Ecological Restoration of Lake Michigan Wetlands

  • Grant Recipient: Ducks Unlimited
  • Amount: $150,000
  • Year: 2014
  • Watershed: Lake Michigan Coast
  • Focus Area: Habitat Restoration

The Fund is supporting Ducks Unlimited in their coordinated efforts to restore three ecologically significant wetlands in the Green Bay and Door County area. The project involves bathymetric study and sediment dredging at Dunes Lake; native revegetation of shallow-water habitat in the Duck Creek Delta; and design and engineering for a 36-acre system of created and connected wetlands that will provide habitat as well as store and treat up to 24 million gallons of stormwater runoff at LH Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve.
