The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural
Resources Conservation is
soliciting applications from
landowners interested in
restoring or enhancing wetlands
on private agricultural
land in Louisiana through
the Wetlands Reserve
Program.
The Wetlands Reserve
Program provides financial
incentives to landowners to
restore natural wetlands
with an emphasis on enhancing
wildlife habitats and
environmental benefits.
“Landowners have several
options for enrollment in
WRP,” said NRCS State
Conservationist Kevin
Norton. “Options include
restoration cost-share agreements,
30-year conservation
easements and permanent
conservation easements all
designed to help landowners
achieve personal land use
goals.”
The Wetlands Reserve
Program is a national program
authorized by the
Farm Bill to assist eligible
landowners restore, create,
protect and enhance wetlands
on their property.
Participation in this program
is voluntary, and
restoration is accomplished
in an environmentally safe,
cost effective manner.
Easement payments are
based on the lowest of either
the fair market value of the
land using an appraisal or
area-wide analysis, the
Geographic Area Rate Cap,
or an offer made by the
landowner.
The current Geographic
Area Rate Cap for Calcasieu
and Cameron parishes is
$1,300 per acre.
Interested landowners are
encouraged to contact the
local USDA Service Center
/Natural Resources
Conservation Service field
office to apply for Fiscal Year
2010 funding. Contact the
NRCS Calcasieu-Cameron
Field Office at 436-5020 Ext.
3 or stop by the office at 1400
Gerstner Memorial Drive,
Suite B.
Program information is
also available online at
www.la.nrcs.usda.gov

The problem is LDWF says the #'s of hunting and fishing licenses are going down each year. Kids are more into video games and computers than going outside.

1 - I agree they could prob get away with a small increase on out of state licenses making them more reciprical of what our neighbors charge.

2 - The STATE of LA needs to move our coastal waters boundry from 3 miles to 10 miles like many of the other states and keep more oil revenues in state. This would self fund many of the coastal erosion plans out there now.

3 - LDWF needs more public education. Esp in the elementary school level. Get kids involved again! And adults.....lots of people don't know what they are doing when it comes to hunting or fishing.

4 - LA is truely Sportsman's Paradise, LDWF needs to do everything in their power to keep it that way. More studies to better understand species of fish or bird, etc. Study the effects of coastal erosion, loss of habitat for shrimp, crabs, etc, that will have a trickle down effect on trout & reds. More in depth studies on offshore species such as triple tail, and red snapper, a.j.'s, and grouper.
