Project Overview
Two properties located in Grant County and one property located in Otter Tail County, MN were purchased via Migratory Bird Conservation Funds by the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). These additions to existing Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs) in the Fergus Falls Wetland Management District (FFWMD) have cropping history and drained, ditched, or tiled wetlands which require restoration. The Fergus Falls Fish and Game Club (FFFGC) would like to partner with the USFWS to survey, generate restoration designs, and work with contractors to restore altered basins. These restorations will be carried out on properties within key habitat areas of Minnesota (Minnesota River Prairie and the Red River Prairie) according to the State Wildlife Action Plan. Positive results from these restorations include: benefits to species of greatest conservation need (SGCN), improved water quality, flood reduction, and land open to the public for hunting, fishing, trapping, and environmental education.
