On November 9, 2006, the New Mexico Ecological Services Field Office (NMESFO)completed a final Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act Report on the wetland restoration activities proposed by the US Army Corps of Engineers on the Bottomless Lakes State Parks near Roswell, New Mexico.  The proposed action is to restore approximately 43 acres of wetlands by removing salt cedar and debris, revegetation with native plant species, construction of open water wetlands, and educational enhancements at the site.  The NMESFO recommended actions to improve fish and wildlife habitats, increase the educational opportunities, and identify a number of wetland enhancements, including nomination of these and nearby salt grass meadows and salt grass marshes as Wetlands of International Importance under the Ramsar Treaty of 1971 for their unique flora, fauna, and hydrology.
