The city of Algoma has approved a proposal from the Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership to restore the southern end of Crescent Beach. The LNRP is currently in the process of securing the necessary grants to remove invasive plants from the shoreline and replace it with native beach grass. Cathy Pabich from the Friends of Crescent Beach says the restoration efforts are much needed.
Pabich says the city of Algoma is also working on securing additional grants for more restoration work on Crescent Beach, which would include redirecting stormwater drains away from the area.
