Proposal request submitted by Calvin R. Fremling and Neal D. Mundahl regarding a joint restoration project between WSU and the City fo Winona for Lake Winona. Created for submission to the Legislative Commission on Minnesota Resources in 1991. Program title: A Cooperative Project Between Winona State University and the City of Winona to Restore Lake Winona Wetlands Dominated by the Noxious Exotic Weed, Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria). From the narrative: "This project proposes to restore two city-owned wetlands adjacent to Lake Winona within the City of Winona. The proposed restoration will: 1) suppress the noxious exotic weed, purple loosestrife, now dominating the areas, 2) establish the wetlands as areas for environmental interpretation and education, 3) provide improved habitat for native wetland biota, and 4) filter stormwater runoff to reduce nutrient loading into the lake. The project will be a cooperative effort involving Winona State University faculty (pre-restoration planning, environmental studies, interpretive planning) and students (environmental studies, class projects), the City of Winona (engineering, construction), the Lake Winona Committee (overlook construction), and area citizens (revegetation, volunteer efforts)." 8 pages. Part of the Cal R. Fremling Collection.
