Habitat Restoration
"The Chevelon State Wildlife Area is located within the flood plains of the Chevelon Creek and the Little Colorado River. This Wildlife Area is comprised of wetland and riparian vegetation communities, and is dominated by two exotic plant species. The Wildlife Contracts Branch will implement a wetland restoration project that re-establishes the native willow-cottonwood associations and rush/sedge wet meadow community to benefit waterfowl, shorebirds, and wading birds. This project will be utilized as a model for future wetland restoration within the Little Colorado River watershed".
