  History
Continued . . .

Since its creation, the district has restored 1,567 wetland basins totaling 8,000 acres; planted 261 grassland sites totaling 5,000 acres of native prairie; acquired 4,255 acres on 25 waterfowl production areas; and established 1,898 acres of habitat easements with 47 private landowners. A great deal of time has also been spent making landowner contacts and advising them on the best practices and programs available to enhance their properties for wildlife.
