Habitat work restoring Lake Superior headwaters

A nearly $1 million project in the headwaters of Lake Superior is transforming a Great Lakes Area of Concern into a haven for fish, birds and outdoors enthusiasts.

Restoration of fish and wildlife habitat in Hog Island Inlet and Newton Creek is a followup to a $6.3 million project that dredged 50,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment from the Wisconsin waters. The habitat work is funded by a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The habitat work will improve ecosystem function in the headwaters of Lake Superior. Go here to learn more about the project.
