COL and Ducks Unlimited to enhance waterfowl habitat along Prewitt Reservoir!
The southern shore of Prewitt Reservoir is visited by thousands of waterfowl during annual migrations. Existing shallow areas are currently cut off by naturally-occurring dams, which discourage waterfowl from stopping. In partnership with DU, we will carefully excavate material, creating a natural back-flooding of shallow basins to provide quality habitat for birds and wetland wildlife. Other improvements will give water managers increased flexibility to meet users’ demands without negatively impacting local ranchers or wildlife. This project is made possible by funding through Great Outdoors Colorado and Playa Lakes Joint Venture and will be completed early this fall.
