Habitat Restoration

The EHJV partnership implements numerous restoration techniques to conserve and improve wetland and upland habitat functions and habitat conditions. This may include using a range of engineering techniques (e.g., berm construction, water-control structures) and, helping to control invasive species (e.g., Phragmites, water chestnut). Partners also work with farmers to modify common agricultural practices to benefit the producer and the environment. This can be accomplished by allowing vegetation re-growth and planting native trees and shrubs on marginal agricultural lands to provide upland nesting cover and increase habitat diversity.
