Oklahoma is part of the Central Flyway and provides important migration and winter habitat for waterfowl that are produced in the Prairie Pothole Region of Canada and the northern United States. In some years, Oklahoma has the potential to winter large numbers of mallards across the state. The Wetlands Reserve Program in Oklahoma emphasizes the protection and restoration of critical waterfowl habitat including bottomland hardwoods and moist-soil wetlands. DU has worked to conserve more than 37,700 acres of waterfowl habitat throughout Oklahoma. Our goal is to secure the future of Oklahoma as a key migration area for migratory waterfowl in North America. Your support of DU will help us achieve that goal.
