Restoration of Riparian Areas in the Muskegon River Watershed
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-74. This project will reforest more than 400 acres of riparian land; restore 150 acres of streambank using native vegetation; put 150 acres of revegetated or natural riparian land into conservation easements; develop 14 forest stewardship plans; and implement proper erosion control best management practices at four riparian sites in high priority sub-watersheds of the Muskegon River. This project is expected to prevent 100 tons of sediment, 1,000 pounds of phosphorus, and 6,000 pounds of nitrogen from reaching the Muskegon River, the Muskegon Lake Area of Concern, and Lake Michigan each year.
