Project Description

This is phase fifteen of an ongoing project designed to protect wetland and grassland communities using a landscape level approach to planning and targeting. Grassland habitats in the region are critically important components of the prairie pothole ecosystem and are largely responsible for maintaining the functions and values of adjacent prairie wetlands. Once lost, the ecological functionality of native prairie habitats is nearly impossible to restore. The project will acquire grassland and wetland easements and one fee donated tract in the Missouri Coteau Region of North Dakota to protect 3,928 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.
