Habitat Restoration

Matchedash Bay, Ontario/©Ducks Unlimited Canada

The EHJV partnership implements numerous restoration techniques to conserve and improve wetland and upland habitat functions and habitat conditions, including:

    Fosterville Marsh Habitat Restoration Project,
    New Brunswick/©Ducks Unlimited Canada

  • degraded wetlands are restored using a range of engineering techniques, including the construction of earthen berms, the installation of water-control structures and/or excavation to address impacts on wetland hydrology and to help control invasive species
  • securing upland areas associated with wetlands and nesting areas by modifying common agricultural practices to benefit the producer and the environment
  • allowing vegetation re-growth and planting native trees and shrubs on marginal agricultural lands to provide upland nesting cover and increase
    habitat diversity
