Fund For Lake Michigan

Restoration of Forest and Wetland Habitat

The Fund for Lake Michigan will help Mequon Nature Preserve restore an 18-acre wetland and hardwood forest remnant site by removing drain tile and re-contouring the area; removing invasive vegetation; and planting native plugs, shrubs and trees. Restoring the natural habitat will reduce polluted runoff into the Milwaukee and Menomonee River watersheds, and reduce flooding along Trinity Creek.
