Wetland grants provide high quality habitat for waterfowl in Kansas

Ducks Unlimited and partners will complete 44 habitat protection and restoration projects in Nebraska and Kansas, thanks to three North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) grants. More than $2.9 million in NAWCA funding will be combined with nearly $6 million in funding from 25 partners to restore or enhance almost 4,500 acres in central Kansas marshes. The projects included in these grants will provide high quality foraging habitat for thousands of waterfowl and waterbirds during fall and spring migration, and year-round habitat for other wetland-dependent wildlife.
