The Habitat Management Plan is a stepdown plan tiered from the Complex’s 2015 Comprehensive Conservation Plan. It recommends changes to existing management infrastructure to improve efficiency in how, where and when water is used to enhance and restore habitat diversity and meet wildlife population objectives. By focusing water usage on priority natural wetland areas, this management plan will support healthy fish and wildlife populations by improving nesting, foraging and migration habitat for a wide array of riparian and wetland dependent species including waterfowl, marshbirds, shorebirds and songbirds. These management actions will also improve hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities for the public.
