ALEXANDRIA – The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is offering technical and financial assistance to agricultural producers in portions of 22 parishes to develop and enhance habitat for migrating birds. This opportunity is being offered through NRCS' Migratory Bird Habitat Initiative (MBHI).
Through MBHI, NRCS will work with agricultural producers to create or enhance shallow water, mud flat, and moist soil habitats to benefit a variety of migratory birds. MBHI projects provide: 1) food and critical habitat for bird populations; 2) much-needed water during drought; 3) support for local economies by attracting hunters and bird watchers; and 4) new opportunities to improve wildlife management.
