Federal Funds Needed to Help Restore Washtenaw County Wetlands And Prairies

Aug 9, 2016

The Washtenaw Food Hub provides area farmers and food businesses with resources to get their products out to the public but also helps protect the environment.  So they're hoping the federal government renews the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act.  Congresswoman Debbie Dingell is helping with the project to restore local wetlands and prairies in Ann Arbor Township.
