Resource Management

Profile-WODUBoxes-520x289Habitat management programs are implemented to meet conservation objectives for migratory and resident wildlife, as well as native plant communities.

Yazoo NWR’s primary management activity is to provide the needed habitat for wintering waterfowl. The Refuge accomplishes this through a variety of active management tools such as moist-soil management, coop farming, permanent water, and green tree reservoirs.  Yazoo NWR also has over 230 wood duck nest boxes located throughout the Refuge.  These boxes also provide nesting habitat for mergansers and black-bellied whistling ducks.
