In September 2008, DU transferred the Shaw property to NGPC as an addition to the Bluewing Wildlife Management Area in Clay County. The 115-acre tract was originally purchased by DU in 2007 with a combination of funding from DU, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and the North American Wetlands Conservation Council. DU is currently planning a wetland restoration project for the site that should be completed in 2009. The Nebraska Environmental Trust and U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service are providing funds to assist with planned habitat restoration work. The property will not only provide significant habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife, but additional public land that can be enjoyed by duck hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts.
