Prairie and Roadside Corridor Enhancement

Description:

This Minnesota project aims to reverse prairie fragmentation and decline in prairie animal, plant and insect populations by establishing continuous habitat corridors along public roads (wider than existing right-of-way) so as to link large habitat units such as state and national parks, wildlife management areas and privately owned native prairies. By providing continuous quality nesting cover and forage, the corridor established under this project will facilitate the movement of wildlife between large habitat units. Of four planned segments, two have been completed, one is underway and one was dropped as an enhancement project.

The 340 acre project is expected to be the first of six to be undertaken by the partners over the next decade.

SUCCESS STORIES: Mitigation Projects

Baraboo Hills/Highway 12

Description:

This project is important because it focuses on the issue of secondary land use impacts likely to be caused by a highway expansion outside the subject natural area. Threatened with the planned widening of Highway 12 between Madison and Sauk City, 9 miles south of the Baraboo Hills, the Wisconsin Field Office joined a coalition of environmental and farm organizations to oppose the widening in the belief that the road would lead to secondary home development in the Baraboo Hills, one of our Last Great Places. The dispute went as far as the President's Council on Environmental Quality and was finally resolved when the Conservancy and its coalition partners helped broker a compromise which will allow the highway to be widened while the Wisconsin DOT will:

  • use $5 million in TEA-21 funds for Sauk County, non-profits (including TNC), and state agencies to purchase land and easements in the Baraboo Hills National Natural Landmark to preserve and protect the forest;
  • use another $5 million in TEA-21 funds to assist Dane County (where the highway widening will take place) protect scenic easements, natural resource areas and farms;
  • spend $50,000 for agricultural land protection in Sauk County; and
  • provide $500,000 in TEA-21 funds in planning assistance for townships in Dane and Sauk Counties to address growth issues associated with the highway.

In addition the Wisconsin DOT and the US Environmental Protection Agency will conduct a study to determine an accurate method for predicting secondary land use impacts associated with future highway projects.

Blue Creek Fen and the Mitchell's Satyr Butterfly

Description:

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has contracted with TNC's Michigan Field Office for butterfly mitigation service at $2,000 per acre for up to 1400 acres in conjunction with a highway widening project in southwest Michigan at Blue Creek Fen. MIFO has identified five potential sites for the endangered Mitchell's satyr butterfly and has begun the land acquisition process.

This project is considered of major importance because the methodology complies with Federal Highway Administration requirements and may thus be replicated around the country.

SUCCESS STORIES: Special Cases

Middle Fork John Day River Preserve

Description:

This is a restoration project which came about when U.S. Forest Service sought to upgrade a gravel road through TNC's Middle Fork John Day River Preserve. Federal Lands Highway Western Division in Vancouver, WA was the project manager and designer. A new two-lane asphalt highway with safer turns was built. The Federal Highway Administration paid $120,000 for restoration of the habitat and rebuilding all fences. In addition, the feds will reopen a channel shutoff by a farmer at an earlier time and will install a bridge rather than a culvert to afford better protection to salmon and trout in the adjacent stream. The Oregon field office gathered native seeds and cuttings for use in the restoration.

HAD YOUR TEA TODAY?

The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991, affectionately known as ISTEA, was succeeded by the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21). How did you fare under these landmark bills? How well is TNC doing in converting gas taxes into solid conservation uses? The answer is "more than $34 million worth," thank you very much.
