Project Description

This is the 11th phase of an ongoing effort to protect, restore and enhance wetland and grassland communities in the Chase Lake Prairie Project area, which encompasses more than 6.6 million acres and contains numerous productive and diverse wetland communities. These wetlands are intricately linked together and historically provided nesting, brood rearing, loafing and foraging habitat for waterfowl, shorebirds, waterbirds and passerines. The surrounding uplands contain some of the highest density of remaining grasslands, which provided nesting, brood-rearing and foraging habitats for waterfowl, shorebirds, raptors and grassland-associated passerines. Through this project, partners will protect wetlands-associated uplands to provide essential nesting habitat for waterfowl and other species, and minimize the influx of sediments and pesticides into these wetland basins.
