Construction is set to begin this winter on the $9.5 million Braddock Bay Wetland Restoration Project. The project, which is funded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, will restore and protect regionally significant wetland habitat while improving boater access to Lake Ontario.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has asked the Town of Greece to help inform hunters and the general public of some temporary restrictions which must be honored in the interest of safety. Due to construction activity and the presence of construction workers in Braddock Bay, hunting will be temporarily prohibited in certain areas beginning January 1, 2016. The restrictions will mainly affect waterfowl hunters in the late waterfowl hunting seasons this winter, and for portions of the fall 2016 waterfowl hunting season.
This work is critical to protect and restore the integrity of Braddock Bay wetlands and the habitat that they provide for fish and wildlife. If you have any questions please send them to Braddock.Bay@usace.army.mi
