Project Details

The Bete Grise Wetlands project was a multi-partner effort to secure conservation protection for 1,875 acres of Great Lakes fishery habitat through land acquisition coupled with a long-term joint management agreement among partner organizations. A combination of USFWS, NOAA, and private funds completed protection of 1,104 acres of the Bete Grise Wetlands, and the Nature Conservancy used this match funding to secure the remaining 771 acres.
