In 2017, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation sponsored the “Harbor District Habitat Hotels” project on Lake Michigan. Elementis is an active supporter of this project. Habitat Hotels provide shelter in an area devoid of habitat for fish on their journey between Lake Michigan and other Milwaukee rivers. To create these shelters, local students planted lily pads, pickerel weed and water celery. Today, university students monitor the structures as part of their School of Freshwater Sciences. The bulkheads of Elementis proudly host these submerged Habitat Hotels.
