Habitat Lease/Native Grass

  • Habitat Conservation Leases
    • NDC has signed leases of marginal farm ground for seasonal wetland and upland gamebird habitat. The land lease contract was for 5 years with the option to renew at the end of the contract. NDC is working on securing more money to be able to continue this program. Donations are welcomed.

  • Native Grasses Program
    • The Native Grasses program was started to improve the habitat for upland gamebirds. In 1998, 15 acres were planted with the assistance of the land owner, NDC, Harvey Lyman Group, Steve Allen aerial, and Ducks Unlimited. Land is managed and monitored biannually once established.
