DU Dedicates Local Project

Ducks Unlimited shows their commitment locally once again with a $1 million-plus project in Lafourche Parish.


DU 1

Ducks Unlimited chose a beautiful day at the beginning of November to dedicate the Grand Bayou Hydrologic Restoration Project at the Pointe-aux-Chenes Wildlife Management Area near Montegut, Louisiana.  Dedicated in honor of Ron and Jackie Bartels' lifetime of service to Ducks Unlimited and waterfowl conservation, the Grand Bayou Project at Pointe-aux-Chenes WMA is a premier example of Ducks Unlimited's work to restore vital  Gulf Coast marshes. 

The goal of the $1.2 million project is to restore coastal marsh vegetation and salinity levels that support resident duck populations, migratory waterfowl and shorebirds, neo-tropical migrant songbirds, and myriad additional marsh-dwelling species, as well as enhance storm surge protection and improve water quality, by reconstructing 22,000 linear feet of levee and installing two water control structures.


The newly installed water structures will allow area managers to control water and salinity levels to promote optimal wildlife habitat.


For more information on the project and partners, click here. 

Thank you for your continuous support for our organization!
