    Thanks to the hard work of Duck's Unlimited staff, the Refuge has been awarded $53,000 as part of a Wildlife Conservation Society's 2015 Climate Adaptation Fund. The grant supports bottomland hardwood conservation efforts in southern Illinois and southwestern Indiana. Funding will cover the purchase of seedlings to reforest 275 acres on the Refuge in 2016 and 2017.
