The Habitat Restoration Plan includes wetlands, shoreline improvements, and a robust habitat layer for the lake bottom. It is the result of extensive work by a team of national and local experts with input from those who use and care about the lake. It includes conceptual designs for habitat restoration and enhancement.
The habitat plan builds on progress at sites in the lake’s watershed to ensure a comprehensive approach to the restoration of Onondaga Lake. When completed, the various projects will create rich wetlands along the lake’s southern shoreline, provide diverse habitats, and increase public access.
