Project Title & Description
Restoration of Fen and Savanna in Southern Michigan
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. Specifically, this project will restore/enhance 225 acres of prairie fen and oak savanna within four watersheds (River Raisin, Grand River, Paw Paw River, and Muskegon River) across southern Michigan by removing invasive plants, reintroducing fire, restoring natural hydrology, and creating corridors of habitat, thereby benefiting 100 plant and animal species in need of conservation. This project will improve physical, chemical, and biological processes and ecosystem functions and improve the conditions of native wildlife.
