Southern Portion

The city has been given the opportunity to utilize state grant dollars to complete wetland restoration in the southern part of the Blaine Wetland Sanctuary. This project is being funded through a grant from Minnesota’s Outdoor Heritage Fund, received by project partner Great River Greening. The southern portion will not be a wetland bank giving the city more options and flexibility in the restoration plan. The restoration is expected to start in late 2019 or early 2020.
