Purpose

The Lake Sinissippi Improvement District proposes to restore undeveloped shoreline habitat along the south end of Anthony Island, on Lake Sinissippi to enhance wildlife habitat restoration and protect the island from erosion. They will remove weedy shrubs in the forest, replant native shrubs and herbaceous vegetation, and install riprap to protect the island from the active erosion that is currently toppling trees into the lake. Photographs of the project at all stages will be presented to DNR, island and lake residents at a public meeting, and included in their newsletter.
