Project Description

This is phase four of a project designed to protect wetland and grassland communities using a landscape-level approach to planning. It is also the third project to span the borders of North Dakota and Minnesota in the Prairie Pothole Joint Venture to protect critical habitat for migratory birds. Through this project, 3,456 acres of native grassland and 594 acres of wetland habitat will be secured by perpetual easements, resulting in significant benefits for grassland birds. Protection of native prairie surrounding the important prairie wetland habitats in the project area will provide nesting habitat for waterfowl and other species, and will minimize the influx of sediments, herbicides and pesticides into these wetlands.
