The Woolsey Wet Prairie Sanctuary is a protected 44 acre wetland restoration project that adjoins the West Side Wastewater Treatment Facility. Woolsey was constructed to offset the 10 acres of wetlands that were altered from the construction of the treatment facility.
Adaptive management is the process by which Woolsey was restored and is maintained. Preserving microtopographs, constructing necessary earthen berms, and seeding of native plant species are key steps in this process. Another essential step to help restrain invasive species, is performing controlled burns. For more information, click here.
