Restoring Elmwood Dunes Preserve

The Problem

Working with community partners, we are endeavoring to preserve a long-abandoned tract of lakefront land to a more natural state. Our wish is to make the property more attractive to migrating birds and more beautiful for our community.

Our Plan

We will clear the property of brush and overgrowth, remove non-native plants, plant native species, clean-up the beachfront, and restore the dunes to their natural state. On an ongoing basis, we will monitor the quality of the water and the conditions on the beach, and report our findings to the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
