Agassiz Cattail Project


Delta Waterfowl proposes a project be set forth on Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), Middle River, MN to enhance the native wildlife habitat and increase biodiversity in more than 10,000 acres of non-forested wetlands. The site is experiencing a significant invasive species infestation of hybrid and non-native cattails. Through various methods and techniques (e.g., grazing, chemical application), accompanied with improved water management, the expected outcome is increased biodiversity, improved water quality, and increased open water habitat within the Refuge's wetland impoundments.
