Project Description

This is phase eight of a project designed to protect wetland and grassland communities using a landscape level approach to planning to protect critical habitat for migratory birds. The grantee will acquire grassland and wetland easements in the Missouri Coteau and James River Lowlands Regions of South Dakota to protect 2,152 acres of grassland and wetland habitat for migratory birds. The easements will become part of the National Wildlife Refuge System under the Small Wetlands Acquisition Program. Waterfowl, particularly northern pintails, will benefit greatly from this project but numerous species of shorebirds, wading birds, marsh birds and other wetland-dependent wildlife species, grassland songbirds and other grassland-dependent wildlife species will also benefit.
