Fund For Lake Michigan

Restoring Lake Michigan Tributaries

  • Grant Recipient: The Nature Conservancy
  • Amount: $150,000
  • Year: 2016
  • Watershed: Basinwide
  • Focus Area: Stream Restoration

Removing barriers in priority rives will support migratory fish and other aquatic species in the face of climate change and other threats. A new tool called Fishwerks will prioritize the most ecologically important rivers. This effort will then replace at least two high-priority barriers and create a list of shovel-ready barrier removal projects.
