Recipient: Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System

Project Type: Habitat Restoration Planning, Engineering, and Design

Recommended Funding Amount: $348,860

Congressional District(s): WI-07

Summary: This project will create a community-informed plan to restore 10.9 acres of regained Ojibwe homelands on Lake Superior’s Gibiskising Minis (land bridge, Wisconsin Point) to their inherent ecological and cultural nature. Input from tribal and non-tribal land managers, archaeologists, local government, tribal members, and tribal government will be incorporated into an actionable restoration and monitoring plan that accounts for the significance of this place. The completed design will be used to pursue funding to restore sand dunes, pine forests, medicinal plants, and cultural relationships.
