The Proposed Project

Ducks Unlimited Canada is proposing to undertake a restoration of constructed wetland infrastructure located at the John Lusby Marsh National Wildlife Area.

The scope of this project includes mechanical breach of three sections of failed / eroding dyke within segment Amherst Point 1-1. The proposed work will be completed during fall /  winter  and during a period when disturbance to migratory birds and other wildlife will be minimal. All necessary measures to address potential siltation will be employed, including use of silt fences. All exposed surfaces will be covered with hay mulch at the completion of construction. The project will result in approximately 7 hectares of saltmarsh habitat restored.
