The key to attracting wildlife to resotored or created wetlands is providing for their basic needs. In addition to wetland plants and hydrology, there are structural components that certain species may find desirable. Many of our designed wetlands indlude structural elements such as:

  • Nesting platform for Osprey

  • Nest boxes for Bluebird, Wood Duck, Kestrel, Swallow

  • Dead snag - perch

  • Basking logs for Turtles
