Ducks Unlimited partnered with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to restore wetland habitat on the South Farm Unit of the Sherburne Waterfowl Management Area (WMA). This project will provide new opportunities for public waterfowl hunting and wildlife watching and will improve habitat management capabilities on this WMA.
The Sherburne WMA project was supported in part by Louisiana DU license plate sales. Project partners gathered in February to dedicate this project to the late John W. Barton Sr., of Baton Rouge, an avid outdoorsman and DU supporter. Ducks Unlimited partnered with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana, North American Wetlands Conservation Council, Irene W. and C. B. Pennington Foundation, friends of John W. Barton Sr., Wetlands America Trust, and the Mosaic Company, which has operations near Baton Rouge and contributed to the project.
