The Mississippi River Valley (MAV), a vital habitat for migratory birds and numerous plant and animal species, “once supported 24 million acres of floodplain forest, swamps, sloughs and riverine habitat,” according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. 40% of North America’s waterfowl and 60% of all bird species migrate along the Mississippi River, although their population has dwindled from habitat loss. The MAV is now “the Southeast’s most deforested region. More than 75% of its forest has been lost since European settlement, mostly to agriculture, and much of the remnant forest occurs in small, isolated tracts of limited conservation value.”

  • Supports the livelihood of landowners in the area and creates new jobs for the local community.
