Thanks to a grant from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, Chambers Grove Park near Duluth, Minn. has been improved. The shoreline of the park was designed during the days when the St. Louis River was more heavily industrialized, and so the park ended abruptly at the river’s edge. By smoothing the slope of the shoreline to naturally connect the park to the river, habitat has been restored. Fishing opportunities at the park and a kayak launch are expected thanks to the restoration work as well. Read more here.
