Fund For Lake Michigan

Schlitz Audubon Stormwater Wetland Excavation Project

Friends of Schlitz Audubon ($100,000)The Fund for Lake Michigan is supporting the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center with this $100,000 award for the first phase of a restoration project designed to combat erosion, increase the stormwater holding capacity, and create educational opportunities at the nature center. By implementing “shovel-ready” stormwater management plans over the course of nine months, the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center anticipates that this project will add 2,453,300 gallons of annual stormwater storage capacity to the area. Furthermore, these habitat restoration activities will reduce sediment runoff into Lake Michigan.
