Project Description

Protect oak woodlot (mottes) and coastal prairie habitats within the Candy Abshier Wildlife Management Area, Chambers County, will be protected from further loss by shoreline erosion thus protecting nesting and roosting habitat for Night Herons, Black-crowned Night Herons, and Yellow-crowned Night Herons as well as resting and recovery habitat for migrating Neotropical passerines. Project will create salt marsh dominated by smooth cordgrass that will provide additional protection from wave action, habitat for aquatic organisms and foraging habitat for herons, egrets, and other birds.
