Shorebird habitat, extended late season shallow water with manipulation to improve cover and shelter


Signup Deadline: February 1, 2019
Suitable shorebird habitat is limited during the summer and fall as birds migrate south post-breeding. Providing shallow water and mud flat habitat will benefit a variety of shorebird species. Optimal conditions are created when water levels are slowly reduced through evaporation, which allows for propagation of invertebrates (typically insect larvae) used as food by shorebirds. 


CSP deadline for all states is May 10, 2019.
