Restoration Work Plan Delta Land Services will restore the wetlands with the following: • Remove livestock • Planting of approximately 164,000 seedlings • Long-term protection with a perpetual conservation servitude • Establishment of maintenance and protection funds in perpetuity

Project Objectives The project area serves as compensatory mitigation for unavoidable impacts to wetlands associated with USACE permits within the New Orleans District’s Lower Grand and West Central Louisiana Coastal watersheds. The restoration of bottomland hardwood and baldcypress swamp forest will provide additional wetland functions and values, which are not currently utilized. This includes: •

The restoration of historic surface hydrology

The re-establishment of the native bottomland hardwood and baldcypress swamp communities through hydrology, restoration and afforestation of native species

To expand and improve contiguous wetland forested habitat
