Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) funding has been essential to restoring openland complexes, especially oak savannas, on the Huron-Manistee National Forests. Along with support from other partners, this funding has helped bolster restoration efforts for habitats that support a variety of species and provide numerous ecological benefits, including watershed health.
