Project Description

The project will restore ecologically connected coastal habitats adjacent to St. Louis Bay and benefit the habitat continuum from salt marshes to coastal freshwater wetlands and upland buffer communities. Habitat management will occur within 2,500 acres of the Wolf River Coastal Preserve and will include hydrologic restoration, a combination of mechanical, chemical, and prescribed fire treatments, and prescribed grazing. These actions will help restore injuries to wetlands, coastal and nearshore habitats in Mississippi injured by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
