Ducks Unlimited members, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources personnel, and members of several Sheboygan County conservation clubs were some of the more than 100 folks who gathered on a sunny afternoon May 19 to celebrate the dedication of a new dam on Sheboygan Marsh.
It was the culmination of a project first envisioned almost a decade ago. Sheboygan Marsh covers more than 14,000 acres of wetland, lowland forest, shrub swamp, wet meadows, and prairie. At least 1,700 acres of open-water habitat is formed by a dam on the northeast corner of the marsh on the Sheboygan River.
