Abstract

The Southern Oregon-Northeastern California (SONEC) region is an important migration and breeding area for Pacific Flyway waterfowl. Through a Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) partnership, the Intermountain West Joint Venture conducted a preliminary analysis of the contribution of SONEC Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) enrollments in meeting recently established spring migrating waterfowl habitat objectives. Results suggest that WRP wetlands may meet up to 21 percent of the energetic needs for spring-migrating dabbling ducks in SONEC at North American Waterfowl Management Plan goal levels.
