Habitat for Species in Greatest Conservation Need


The primary purpose of the project is to acquire and restore additional areas around wetlands for nesting habitat. The focus is on developing shortgrass habitats on droughty soils to provide nesting habitat for species that prefer open areas for nesting including Blanding's Turtles, birds like the Grasshopper Sparrow and waterfowl like the Pintail. At Perch Creek the project will protect additional wetland breeding habitat and the adjacent hillsides needed to provide the critical nesting habitat that is missing from this 490 acre WMA which protects calcareous fens.
