Our Work

Habitat Restoration

The EHJV partnership implements numerous restoration techniques to conserve and improve wetland and upland habitat functions and habitat conditions. For example, partners may restore degraded wetlands using a range of engineering techniques, help control invasive species (e.g., Phragmites, Water chestnut), work with farmers to modify common agricultural practises to benefit the producer and the environment by allowing vegetation re-growth and planting native trees and shrubs on marginal agricultural lands to provide upland nesting cover and increase habitat diversity.
