La Crosse River Marsh restoration reaching first-year milestone
Members will detail efforts during online online forum
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — The restoration of the La Crosse River Marsh is reaching a milestone.
The City’s Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department launched the multi-year project to address hydrology, habitat and recreational infrastructure of the marsh.
Wednesday, members of the effort will talk about what has been done, what needs to be done and why the work matters to the community.
“Trails, they’re closed an awful lot — again, because of high water,” said Chuck Lee, president of Friends of the La Crosse River Marsh. “That’s expensive to repair. It’s inconvenient.”
The update will take place online.
Members of the project sharing information about the effort’s progress and plans moving forward.
