Purpose: To install marsh terraces on Alligator Slide Lake to reduce wave action and promote establishment of emergent and submergent vegetation. With reduced wind fetch and water turbidity, quality waterfowl foods such as pondweeds and other aquatics can establish and thrive. In addition, the marsh terraces will be vegetated to enhance available food resources and nesting habitat. The Guadalupe Delta Wildlife Management Area is open to public waterfowl hunting.
