More Wetlands in Carrol County

Posted Wednesday May 31, 2017 by wf_admin

Wetlands contain more plants and animals per acre than any other type of ecosystem. With that in mind, your support was used to help create an area of habitat in Carroll County, Iowa. The constructed wetlands consists of approximately ½ acre of deep water and 1 ½ acres of cattails which were introduced to enhance nitrate reduction. The nine acres of upland area around the wetlands was created with a native grasses mixture. The area has an adequate water supply, even during moderate dry spells. The project was another example of a successful partnership between local and national groups. In addition to you, project partners included the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Carroll County Soil and Water District and the Carroll County Chapter of Pheasants Forever.
