Money Secured for Sandusky Bay Scheme

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) has awarded $5.7 million to be used for Great Lakes restoration through the Sustain Our Great Lakes program, including $950,000 to The Winous Point Marsh Conservancy to restore 175 acres of coastal wetland in Sandusky Bay.

The Conservancy has also put forward $1,500,000 in matching funds to pay for the project.

“This award is great news for Northern Ohio and the entire Great Lakes region, supporting the rebuilding of one of our critical coastal wetlands,” said Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur.

According to NFWF, “The wetland will provide additional habitat within an existing coastal wetland complex that is highly used by waterfowl, marshbirds, and shorebirds. This restoration will add wetland habitat to a region that has lost approximately 75% of its historic coastal wetland.”

A second Ohio award recipient, The Cleveland Museum of Natural History, is set to receive $126,366 to support restoration and enhancement of 265 acres of emergent marsh and swamp forest habitat in Mentor Marsh, a National Natural Landmark.
