Chase Lake Prairie Project
In North Dakota, the Chase Lake Prairie Project covers 5.5 million acres in 11 counties. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff work closely with landowners and other partners to develop grazing systems, create and restore wetlands, and enhance grasslands for wildlife. This model of conservation supports profitable agriculture and abundant wildlife, ensuring the future of our natural heritage.
Ninety-seven percent of the land in the Chase Lake Prairie Project is privately owned. The Project's great success in restoring and conserving fragile wetland and prairie habitat is a direct result of productive partnerships between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and local landowners.
Erected by North Dakota Fish and Wildlife Department.
