WCW WPA Wetland Restorations


This project will restore 65 acres of Type I wetlands on newly seeded WPAs. This project will most immediately benefit breeding waterfowl in the WMD. However, numerous other species of wetland/grassland dependent wildlife, many of which are listed as state species in greatest conservation need (SGCN), can also benefit from these restored acres. This project is supported by the DNR and USFWS.
