Habitat Restoration and Enhancement
This effort builds upon the highly successful collaboration between NRCS, NFWF, DU, Mississippi Wildlife and others to create and enhance several hundred thousand acres of wetland and aquatic habitat for waterfowl, waterbirds, and shorebirds that use the Gulf coastal plain for overwintering and migration stop-over sites. The activities will leverage Farm Bill incentives from NRCS to generate at least 5,000 acres of high quality wetland and aquatic habitats.
