What We Do

Programs and Services

Wetland Restoration and Winter Water

In 1991, Delta Wildlife and Duck Unlimited got together with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Park and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to establish the Mississippi Partners Program. This program has provided over 100,000 acres of additional waterfowl habitat since its inception. Landowners agree to impound water behind the donated structures during the winter months and manage the impoundments to create ample food resources for waterfowl. In addition to the Partners Program, Delta Wildlife provides technical assistance to members interested in restoring and/or managing wetlands.
