TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Conservation organizations are joining together to turn 2,500 acres along western Lake Erie back into wetlands.
The groups say restoring the wetlands east of Toledo near the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge will help improve water quality and provide habitat for fish and birds.
It's 1 of many projects aimed at building wetlands along Lake Erie through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
The Nature Conservancy's Ohio program says it has received nearly $10 million from the Great Lakes project.
This week, the conservation groups marked the completion of turning a 100-acre wheat field into a coastal marsh at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.
The project includes pumps and water control devices that can allow fish into the wetlands while also block out unwanted carp that can destroy the marsh.
