This grant enabled the purchase of a 409-acre wetland and surrounding upland known as Humbug Marsh on the Detroit River. This parcel will ultimately be conveyed to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services as part of the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge. GLFT funds joined with several federal, state, private, and corporate donations for the purchase of the property.
