The Onondaga Lake 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. The various projects created rich wetlands and other diverse habitats along the lake’s western and southern shorelines and on the lake bottom. A sustainable habitat that allows for public access has been an integral part of the approach for restoring Onondaga Lake.
