Wetlands grants will improve bird habitats

A wetlands restoration project, which will help improve the habitat for migratory birds and waterfowl in both Illinois and Missouri, has received a grant and matching funds totaling $3-million. The Migratory Bird Conservation Commission approved $1 million in funding for a project to protect and restore almost 2,900 acres of breeding, migration and winter habitat in southwestern Illinois and St. Charles County, Mo. The oversight company, Ducks Unlimited for Bottomlands of the Great Rivers, and its partners, will provide more than $2 million in matching money. Residential and commercial development has hurt wetlands and caused erosion and runoff.  The project will focus on the Big Muddy River Bottoms and Cache River Basin areas within the Shawnee National Forest and the Cypress Creek National Wildlife Refuge.
