Video Showcases Efforts to Restore the Cat Island Chain

Produced by the Wisconsin DNR, “Cat Island–Rebirth of an Environment” was released in July of 2017 and showcases the efforts to restore the Cat Island Chain, once washed away in the Bay of Green Bay. Clean dredged sediment is being used for restoration efforts. Triple benefits of the project are an improved shipping lane, lower cost storage of dredged material, and habitat restoration for many species including the endangered Piping Plover. The work will continue for many years and has seen success through the many partners working in the area.

*Please note that the island is currently closed to the public during construction and for the protection of the plover and other sensitive species.*

Partners include:
Brown County
Clean Bay Backers
Port of Green Bay
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
