Document Description
The Ash Creek Wildlife Area (ACWA) provides important habitat for a variety of biological species and is one of the major nesting areas for the State threatened greater sandhill crane. Existing habitat and natural resources along Ash Creek and its associated floodplain are degraded and continue to degrade due to a variety of past management practices which occurred prior to the State's purchase of the property. A proven restoration method, known as the "pong-and-plug" technique, is proposed to restore approximately 3,500 acres on the ACWA by allowing flood flows access to the floodplain.
