Coastal Wetland Habitat Restored on Lake Erie

Michigan's 4,000-acre Pointe Mouillee State Game Area is located on the southwestern coast of Lake Erie in one of the Midwest's most productive waterfowland fish-spawning areas.

Over time, however, wetland infrastructure on some of these units has fallen into disrepair.
