Final Planting for Phase One of Little Lake Restoration

The Bradley Lake restoration group is hoping to finish the planting for phase one of the project on Saturday, November 5th. The small body of water, commonly known as “Little Lake” in Sturgeon Bay has been the subject of a project spearheaded by the City of Sturgeon Bay, the noon Rotary Club and others, to bring it back to the way it was before it became overgrown with invasive plants, algae and high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus. With the creation of a group of interested citizens, plans were developed for a three phase project that will lead to the 20-acre lake’s restoration. During the first phase, an engineered wetland has been created including plantings. The final planting is set for Saturday, November 5th. Volunteers will meet at 9:30AM with the goal of planting 90 shrubs and trees, along with additional trays of emergent plant plugs to put in place. Anyone who wants to help should bring a shovel, otherwise tools are available.
