Platte River WMA restoration a win-win for ducks, duck hunters

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. – Oct. 9, 2013 – Ducks Unlimited is restoring and enhancing several tracts along the Platte River in Nebraska thanks to a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust (NET). Partnering with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission on the Platte River Wildlife Management Area Partnership grant, DU will remove invasive trees and excavate old remnant slough scars to restore hydrology and the function of wetlands and native grasslands on four wildlife management areas (WMAs).

Ducks Unlimited awarded $10,000 grant from Oregon Trail Community Foundation

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. – April 30, 2013 –The Oregon Trail Community Foundation awarded a $10,000 grant to Ducks Unlimited to support acquisition of the Tottenhoff property and an associated restoration project. The Tottenhoff property comprises 256 acres along the Platte River in Scotts Bluff County, a priority area for DU because of its value to migrating waterfowl. The property has additional value because it is adjacent to an existing wildlife area, Spotted Tail Wildlife Habitat Area (WHA), which is owned and managed by the Platte River Basin Environments (PRBE).
