Project Title & Description
Hobart Marsh Restoration Project
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 control invasive species and restore wildlife habitat in wetlands and uplands on 127 acres of protected natural lands in the Little Calumet River watershed, a sub-watershed of the Lake Michigan Basin. This project will reduce sedimentation and non-point source pollution in the watershed; and will improve ecosystem function by improving physical, chemical, and biological processes in a range of habitat types, including tall-grass prairie, burr oak savanna, black oak savanna, deciduous swamp, emergent marsh and sedge meadow.
