Document Description
This project comprises a total of 877 acres within which a total of 600 acres of palustrine emergent wetlands will be restored through a combination of reestablishment and rehabilitation. The underlying purpose 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 greenhouse gases.
