Fund For Lake Michigan

Neumiller Woods/Gitzlaff Park wetland and restoration

  • Grant Recipient: Village of Somers
  • Amount: $27,541
  • Year: 2014
  • Watershed: Pike River
  • Focus Area: Habitat Restoration

With this grant from the Fund for Lake Michigan, the Town of Somers will make several water-quality improvements to Neumiller Woods Park, at the headwaters of the Somers branch of the Pike River. By scraping a sedimented area of wetland, restoring native vegetation, and replacing an undersized culvert, this project will reduce flooding in the area surrounding the park and decrease polluted runoff into the Pike River. These improvements were informed and prioritized by a restoration plan that the Fund supported in 2013.
