The City of Winona successfully won a grant to fund restoration efforts around East Lake Winona. Over the next three years, the City and the volunteer organization Healthy Lake Winona (HLW) will work to remove invasive plant species and replace them with more beneficial native species.
This future work will build off the restoration pilot project undertaken by both the City and HLW this summer by the Franklin St. boat launch and Visitor’s Center.
Those interested in this project should watch for volunteer opportunities, as much of the grant will involve in-kind citizen volunteer work to improve conditions at the lake. Watch the Healthy Lake Winona website for project updates or contact John Howard at the City of Winona.
