Project Description

This project will acquire and enhance a 10-15-acre parcel at Indian Pass for inclusion in St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) to ensure boating access for continued habitat protection and management activities that protect and enhance resources injured by the Deepwater Horizon-injured resources on St. Vincent NWR. Additionally, this project will increase public access to recreational activities, such as fishing and boating, by increasing parking availability, establishing a kayak launch area, and creating the Refuge's first visitor contact station at St. Vincent NWR.
