Fund For Lake Michigan (FFLM)
A 2012 FFLM grant is funding the inventory of fish passage impediments and northern pike spawning habitat on eight Milwaukee River tributary streams directly connected to the Milwaukee Estuary Area of Concern and remediation of multiple fish passage impediments.  In addition, this grant is funding larval fish trapping to document improvements in natural reproduction following fish passage restoration activities.

A 2013 FFLM grant is also funding the second phase of a large scale habitat restoration project on Ulao Creek in the Village of Grafton.  This project involves stream remeandering, wetland and habitat creation and enhancement, invasive vegetation controls, and native tree plantings to improve the ecologic productivity of the Ulao Creek Watershed.  

A 2014 FFLM grant is funding two large scale, structural impediment removal/remediation projects on Mineral Springs Creek in the City of Port Washington. This includes the removal of a large failing dam and stream restoration activities, and the replacement of a culvert at the Park Street and Mineral Springs Creek road and stream crossing.
