Last year was a productive one for management action projects securing funding and reaching completion. For Wildlife Management Action Projects, 75% (15 of 20) were complete by the end of 2022, expanding habitat for key species in the Maumee AOC, such as the sandhill crane and wild turkeys. For Aquatic Management Action Projects, combining both the AOC-funded and non-AOC funded projects, 90% of AquaMAPs are fully funded. Looking ahead, several more AquaMAPs will have design and construction underway in 2023.
We are proud to share our AOC’s progress toward BUI removal and looking forward to what this year brings.
