This project will permanently remove a 30-acre agricultural field, a large source of sediment and nutrient loading, keeping nitrogen and phosphorus from the Grand River watershed and Lake Erie. Once complete, it will provide for the restoration of approximately 20 acres of forested wetlands, 5 acres of emergent marsh, and 6 acres of upland forest. These actions will slow the flow of water across the landscape, restoring a more natural runoff after storms while providing important habitat for wildlife, recreation, and educational opportunities.
Project Size: 30 Acres
Partner: Stream and Wetlands Foundation
