Detailed information: The project is designed to establish a quiet backwater, at the mouth of the Wolf River, that will aid in the growth of native submergent and emergent aquatic plants, improve water quality, and create new fish and wildlife habitat. In response to the dramatic loss of thousands of acres of wetlands, deteriorating water quality, degraded fish and wildlife habitat, and diminished fish and wildlife populations on the upriver lakes of the Winnebago pool system, DNR developed the Winnebago Comprehensive Management Plan with significant input from the public and other state, local and federal agencies. The plan proposed to restore the former delta wetland of the Wolf River at its mouth at Lake Poygan. Phase 1 construction was completed September 2016. Phase 2 construction is anticipated to being Spring 2019.
