Fund For Lake Michigan

Little Manitowoc Coastal Wetland Restoration

Record flooding in early summer 2008 drained a coastal wetland on the Little Manitowoc River, leaving a mud flat that filled in with invasive species and preventing migratory fish from spawning upstream. The Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership will use a grant from the Fund for Lake Michigan to reconnect the reaches of the river and re-establish a wetland with native vegetation, restoring fish and waterfowl habitat and improving local access to the river system.
