The WI DNR will be holding a public information session about a proposed project that would restore habitat for the Piping Plover, a federal &state endangered bird. The project will improve habitat along about 1,700 feet of St. Louis River shoreline near Superior, Wisconsin in an area owned by the Wisconsin DNR called the WI Point Bird Sanctuary. The project, which is intended to support re-colonization, will incorporate the use of dredged sand from the Duluth-Superior Federal Navigation Channel to improve habitat for the birds consisting of not only the shoreline, but 8 acres of foraging &nesting habitat as well. The project is funded by the EPA and designed and constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in conjunction with the Wisconsin DNR. Construction is anticipated to take place during summer and fall 2019. You may also submit comments in writing to:
