East Funk Bottoms

Wayne County

The Wilderness Center will partner with ODNR to purchase and restore wetland functionality to a previously farmed 27-acre area that sits within the floodplain of the Mohican River. The project will capture drainage from nearby farm fields while holding and treating water through the addition of multiple shallow vernal pools. The site will be seeded with native warm season grasses and trees to further aid in sediment erosion and nutrient reduction.

Project Size: 20 Acres
Partner: The Wilderness Center
