Patte Marsh-White Mountain National Forest

Ducks Unlimited (DU) and the US Forest Service finished their second cooperative project on the White Mountain National Forest in the fall of 2002. After a one year delay in construction, the US Forests Service completed the restoration of an old stone and masonry dam built in the 1800’s on a 45 acre impoundment, known as Patte Marsh.

Howard Mill Marsh Restoration, Moosehorn NWR

One of DU's first engineering projects was completed on the Moosehorn NWR, located in Downeast Maine, close to the town of Calais. The refuge was established in 1937 for the protection and management of habitats important to migratory waterfowl, especially black ducks. It is also important to other wildlife such as woodcock, where much research has been conducted on their life habits.

Seavey Landing, Scarborough, ME

The majority of Scarborough Marsh, Maine’s largest saltwater marsh complex, has been negatively impacted by man-made ditches, which have drained the marsh, lowering the natural water table and reducing the number of permanent pools on the high marsh. In spring 2002, the re-creation of 46 acres of open water habitat by modifying existing ditches and re-creating pools was completed.
