Ducks Unlimited, a partner with WDNR, the Friends and others has been awarded a $1M NAWCA grant. Some of these funds are intended for restoration and purchases in the Mukwonago River watershed. We are hoping this project will continue to move forward. Kudos to Ducks Unlimited for managing these grants.
The North American Wetlands Conservation Act conserves North America’s waterfowl, fish and wildlife resources while producing a variety of environmental and economic benefits. More than $1 billion in federal grants has been allocated for NAWCA projects – a figure that has leveraged an additional $3 billion from matching and non-matching funds. This is a great public-private partnership that works to produce environmental and economic win-wins.
