Land Trust wins grant to buy Port, Grafton land PDF Print E-mail

Federal funding would help with purchase if group can negotiate deal

    The Ozaukee Washington Land Trust has been awarded $300,000 in federal funding to purchase, restore and preserve more than 600 acres along Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee River in Ozaukee and Washington counties, including parcels in the City of Port Washington and Town of Grafton.

    Land Trust Executive Director Shawn Graff declined to discuss specific details of the two parcels or comment on whether they are part of the former VK Development holdings on Port’s far south side because of ongoing negotiations, but he said the properties are on and near the lakefront and important to the organization’s efforts to preserve migratory bird habitat.

    The grant, which is being awarded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under its Great Lakes Watershed Habitat and Species Restoration Initiative Grants Program using funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, is intended to fund the preservation of migratory bird habitat, which is one of the priorities of the Land Trust.
