Restoration Work Plan Delta Land Services will restore the wetlands with the following: • Long-term protection with a perpetual conservation servitude • Establishment of maintenance and protection funds in perpetuity • Planting of approximately 592,000 seedlings

Project Objectives The project area serves as compensatory mitigation for unavoidable impacts to wetlands associated with USACE permits within the New Orleans District’s Bayou Teche and Vermillion Basin watersheds. This is accomplished through the reestablishment and protection of the wetland ecosystem that will provide additional wetland functions which include: • To expand and improve contiguous forested habitat for species such as the Louisiana black bear • The restoration of historic surface hydrology • The re-establishment of the native bottomland hardwood and baldcypress swamp species community
