Document Description
This project will restore approximately 740 acres of permanent palustrine emergent wetlands through a combination of reestablishment and rehabilitation. The underlying purposes of the project will be to stop or reverse subsidence, create habitat, and sequester atmospheric carbon. By maintaining permanent and adequate water levels, the growth and subsequent decomposition of emergent vegetation is expected to grow peat, which will raise surface elevations on the property. The parcel is expected to provide year-round wetland habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. The project is also anticipated to provide climate benefits by sequestering atmospheric carbon that will help provide a net reduction in GHG.
