Project Description

The Chase Lake Area Wetland Project (CLP) encompasses more than 6.5 million acres in the Missouri Coteau physiographic sub-region in central North Dakota. It also lies in the heart of the Prairie Pothole Region and Prairie Pothole Joint Venture area. This landscape contains some of the most numerous, productive and diverse wetland communities in the world with wetland densities often exceeding 100 basins per square mile. These diverse and complex wetland habitats are linked together and provide nesting, brood rearing, loafing and foraging habitats for wetland dependent waterfowl, shorebirds, waterbirds, and passerines, as well as many mammals, amphibians and aquatic insects. This project will conserve over 18,000 acres through restoration and enhancement activities as well as conservations and lease acquisitions.
