Fund For Lake Michigan

Restoration and Invasive Species Control at WI State Natural Areas and surrounding Landscapes

Wisconsin’s State Natural Areas (SNAs), comprising 687 preserves across the state, facilitate valuable research and education, preserve genetic and biological diversity, provide refuges for rare species, and serve as benchmarks for determining impacts of use on managed lands. Yet invasive species and a lack of active management threatens many SNAs.  Funding for this project supports wide-ranging restoration efforts such as invasive species removal on seventeen SNAs in the Lake Michigan Watershed, including seven miles of Lake Michigan coastline.
