Inner Bay Coastal Wetlands

Sandusky County | Sandusky Bay Watershed

Focused along the southern shore of Western Sandusky Bay, these projects will restore coastal floodplain wetlands and create new in-water wetland habitat. The restored coastal floodplain wetlands near Pickerel Creek will trap sediment and process nutrients from adjacent agricultural areas. Nature-based shoreline wetlands will improve nearshore water quality, reduce sediment resuspension, and restore shallow-water fish and wildlife nursery and spawning habitats in Sandusky Bay.

Project size: 65 Acres
Partners: The Nature Conservancy
