The City of Manitowoc is partnering with Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership (LNRP), Friends of Manitowoc River Watershed, and Stantec Consulting Services, Inc to perform ecological restoration within portions of Lower Henry Schuette Park, 3800 Broadway Street. This restoration will take place near the lower parking lot off of Broadway Street. The primary focus will be removing invasive plant species and establishing and maintaining appropriate native plant communities. Restoration will occur over the course of several years and will include herbicide treatments to control invasive plant species and planting of native herbaceous and woody species. Due to the extensive area of invasive plants, portions of the park will look brown for most of the 2020 growing season. Native seed and plants will be installed in 2021 with the intent of establishing greater species diversity. This project is being paid for by two grants received by the LNRP from the U.S. Forestry Service and the Wildlife Conservation Society Climate Adaptation Fund.
