Bay View Wetland/Grand Trunk Wetland Restoration


The Bay View wetland is one of the only remaining wetlands in the Milwaukee Estuary, an area that was historically an expansive freshwater marsh. Restoration of this remnant wetland has been identified as an important habitat restoration project within the Milwaukee Estuary AOC as well as an important step in the revitalization of the harbor area.

The goal is to restore the wetland to be a benefit for fish and wildlife as well as an asset for the community. The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee (RACM) has been working
