Project Overview
The Rollie Johnson Steamboat Island is a one acre island in Upper Whitefish Lake. A major threat to Steamboat Island fish, plant and wildlife habitat is the loss of vegetative cover and shrubs and trees in the upland areas due to shoreline erosion. The Goal of this funding application is to complete approximately 225 linear feet of shoreline restoration. Once completed, the area will have sufficient vegetative cover to prevent shoreline and upland erosion and allow for the area and adjacent littoral zone to support expanded plant, wildlife and aquatic communities. Note that the size of the actual restoration area is 0.155 acres - 225 feet by 30 feet high.
