Project Title & Description
Restoring Lake Superior's Streams One Neighborhood At a Time
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 protect and restore urban riparian zones and implement critical habitat restoration projects on riparian properties adjacent to streams draining into Lake Superior in the St. Louis River Area of Concern. The projects will restore critical habitat and native landscapes, install and implement green infrastructure and plant and protect approximately 20,000 trees on private riparian lands. The project follows the Civilian Conservation Corps model of employing underemployed or disadvantaged community members to implement priority conservation projects.
