Fund For Lake Michigan

Silver Spring Park’s Phase 3

  • Grant Recipient: Whitefish Bay Garden Club
  • Amount: $25,000
  • Year: 2020
  • Watershed: Lake Michigan Coast, Milwaukee River
  • Focus Area: Habitat Restoration

A bioretention basin and rain garden were installed at Silver Spring Park in 2019-20. As Phase 3 of these efforts to restore and preserve the Park, the Whitefish Bay Garden Club will create a more sustainable, biodiverse environment by replacing exotic plant species with natives for improved water management and quality, bluff stability, and an ecologically sound landscape. This will yield much-needed habitat for migratory birds and native pollinator species including the Karner Blue butterfly, the Rusty Patched Bumblebee, and the Monarch Butterfly.
