Grants and Federal Funds Will Improve Wetlands in Kansas

GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — Three grants from a federal fund and donations from Ducks Unlimited and its partners will pay for nearly $9 million in habitat protection and restoration projects in Kansas.  The Great Bend Tribune reports more than $2.9 million in funding to enhance 4,500 acres in central Kansas marshes will come from North American Wetlands Conservation Act grants. Ducks Unlimited and its partners are adding nearly $6 million to help pay for the project.  NAWCA has provided more than $1.7 million in grant funds for wetland protection efforts in Kansas, with Ducks Unlimited and its partners matching NAWCA's contributions at least dollar-for-dollar and often far more.  The North American Wetlands Conservation Act of 1989 was passed, in part, to support activities under the North American Waterfowl Management Plan.
