Derr Restoration

LOOKING Closer

Located on Nature Conservancy property along the south channel of the central Platte, this camera shows part of a habitat restoration project where a sandpit lake has been regraded and shaped to create a meandering stream channel with backwater wetlands and wet meadow habitat. The restoration began in summer 2011. Project funding has come from Ducks Unlimited, the Nature Conservancy, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
