The Little Lake Restoration Project in Sturgeon Bay is moving forward with a planting of 90 trees and shrubs this Saturday in the Engineered Wetland south of Little Lake. Rotarians, Master Gardeners, and other volunteers planted 1,100 emergent plant plugs back in July as the first of three phases of the project is being implemented. Rotary Environmental Protection Committee Co-Chair Roger Anderson says he will be meeting with the city this Thursday and explains the expensive next phase of dredging the lake.
Anderson says additional volunteer are welcome to help on Saturday morning for the planting of trees and shrubs and should be at Little Lake by 9:30am. Little Lake is located by Sunset Park off of Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. The planting should only take a few hours since pre-holes have been dug already, according to Anderson.
