The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) recently announced a partnership project at its San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) near the mouth of the San Bernard River. Teaming up with FWS to support the waterfowl project are Phillips Petroleum Company, Ducks Unlimited and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Named after a low-value plant that covers much of the area, the Wolfweed Reservoir Project will provide the Refuge with much-needed water during waterfowl migration seasons. The planned 374-acre reservoir will provide moist soil areas rich in waterfowl foods, eliminate areas of dense, undesirable wolfweed, provide resting and feeding habitat for a wide variety of migratory birds, provide freshwater inflows to the brackish marshes damaged by saltwater intrusion and enhance other conditions for wildlife using the Refuge. It is estimated that the Wolfweed Reservoir Project will be complete in the fall of 1993.
