    This is the next phase in DUC's multi-year commitment to deliver science-based habitat conservation projects to achieve NAWMP goals in the BC-PBHJV and the CIJV. This effort will include the replacement and management of aging water control infrastructure, and the securement of 24 acres via fee simple acquisition. Project partners will also work together to enhance 390 acres. Priority bird habitat will be impacted by stewardship activities on 2,150 acres and DUC will manage 419,910 acres of previously secured habitat.

    This is the next step in DUC's multi-year commitment to achieve the goals and objectives of the PHJV under NAWMP. The proposed program directly supports the 2013-2020 PHJV Implementation Plan. It will result in 9,809 secured acres and 9,919 enhanced acres of wetlands and associated upland habitat, will influence another 3,700,000 acres through stewardship activities, and will manage 3,668,859 previously protected acres. DUC will further these efforts through evaluation, communications and endowment activities.

    Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan

    Project: Potholes Plus Project
    Location: Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan
    Grantee: Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corporation

    Canadian Matching Funds: $160,000
    Joint Venture Region: Prairie Habitat Joint Venture
    BCR: 11

    Under the framework of PHJV implementation plans, this project will result in permanent protection of 585 acres of waterfowl breeding habitat in Manitoba. Project activities will also include restoration of 110 acres of previously drained wetlands, making new habitat available for breeding activity. These restored acres will also be protected via conservation agreements for a minimum of 10 years. Management activities such as compliance monitoring and hen house maintenance will occur on 115,400 previously secured acres.
