This effort brings together an extensive list of partners to achieve diverse wetland conservation results at a landscape scale. The grantee will conserve 4,279 acres and enhance 840 acres of the conserved land. The project will permanently protect 382 acres of wetlands, much of which will be added to the Talmo Marsh Wildlife Management Area. Conducting 15 individual projects to restore and enhance wetland habitat conditions, the grantee will also plant new vegetation to support foraging birds during spring migration. Mallard, pintail, and White-Fronted Goose populations greatly depend on these habitats in the Rainwater Basin, as do shorebirds.
This map shows a general area in which land acquisitions, protection, or restoration activities occur. These general areas will be replaced by specific project polygons if/when that information becomes available.↩
