October 4, 2009 – The Missouri Coteau of south central Saskatchewan provides an array of wetland and upland habitat for North America’s waterfowl. This landscape produces waterfowl that winter and migrate through Mississippi, and Major Sponsors in Mississippi truly understand and appreciate the importance of habitat conservation projects in Canada.
The Mississippi Connection Project is comprised of four individual project segments totaling nearly 700 acres. Over 300 acres of annually cropped lands have been converted to dense nesting cover, and 60 acres of wetlands have been restored. Additional native prairie previously used for annual pasture is now managed for waterfowl production.
The following sponsors generously provided funding for the Mississippi Connection Project: Marc and Lainie Anthony, Pam and Larry Edwards, Dr. Marshall and Teresa Hollis, Bruce and Karen Lewis, Joe and Janet Moss, Larry and Sheila Roberts, Neal and Sarah Ballard, Rodney and San Garrison, Curtis and Sharon Hopkins, Jack Moss, Ronal and Patti Roberson, and Rea Taylor.
