Inner Bay Coastal Wetlands Restoration

Sandusky County | Sandusky Bay Watershed

These coastal Lake Erie projects, focused along the southern shore of the Western Sandusky Bay, will restore frequently flooded wetlands and create new in-water habitat. Restored wetland area, near Pickerel Creek, will trap sediment and process excess nutrients from adjacent agricultural areas. Nature-based shoreline wetlands will improve water quality near the shore, reduce sediment redistribution, and restore shallow-water fish and wildlife habitat in Sandusky Bay.  

Project size: 65 Acres
Partners: The Nature Conservancy
