The North American Wetlands Conservation Extension Act (H.R. 925) will be on the House floor for a vote. This program has been an important part of wetland restoration and development in Missouri. Please let your representative know that you support reauthorization of NAWCA and how important it is for wetlands and birds in Missouri. When you are birding or hunting at one of Missouri’s managed wetland areas, chances are good that the birds you see have benefited from one of the NAWCA projects that have taken place on MDC or FWS lands.
H.R. 925 would reauthorize NAWCA for five years at $60 million per year. The bill is scheduled to come to the floor for a vote on Wednesday, November 20th. Please urge your representative to support NAWCA by passing H.R. 925, and pass the word that action is needed soon.
