Print Friendly Version

On March 11, 2009, the Migratory Bird Conservation Commission approved a $999,570 grant under the North American Wetland Conservation Act (NAWCA) for a project called Conservation in the Confluence.  The grant program's goal is to protect and restore wetands and adjacent uplands to benefit wetland associated wildlife.  The NAWCA requires, at a minimum, the grant amount be matched with non-federal contributions.  This is typically accomplished by partners from State, Tribal and other non-governmental organizations.  In this case, non-federal partners contributed $2.2 million and an additional $105,000 was contributed by federal partners.

Efforts will be concentrated in three Missouri counties and will protect, restore and enhance 3,813 acres of wetland and 841 acres of upland habitat.  The grantee is Ducks Unlimited, Inc. and the non-federal partners are Wetlands America Trust, St. Louis Audubon Society, and the Missouri Department of Conservation.
