2014 Wetlands 1


This work will be done on Waterfowl Production Areas in the Detroit Lakes Wetland Management District that are all open to public use. At these sites the upland restoration has already been completed using native grasses and forbs. The work will serve two purposes. The primary purpose of course is to provide wildlife habitat, specifically for waterfowl production and other wetland dependent species habitat needs. All of these sites are also in the flood-prone Red River Valley. These wetlands will hold water out of the streams, ditches, and rivers, decreasing flood peaks downriver.
