Your support was matched one for one to restore non-tidal wetlands in the Chesapeake Bay watershed by Ms. Dorothy Lawson. The project was needed because 75% of Maryland’s non-tidal wetlands had been destroyed or severely altered. The new wetlands are being managed for fall and wintering habitat for dabbling ducks, and spring habitat for northward migrating ducks. This project was the first of many similar projects which seek to restore between 30 and 40 acres annually. Wildlife Forever partnered with the Chesapeake Wildlife Heritage, Ducks Unlimited, Waterfowl Festival and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to complete the project. By combining your support with that of our partners Wildlife Forever was able to multiply the results of your donations several times over.
