Down in the Missouri boot heel lies a huge expanse of natural wetlands in the New Madrid Floodway where migratory birds like the great egret seek rest and food, and where fish spawn and thrive.
To appease a handful of large landowners, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers wants to build an enormous levee to cut off the floodway’s water supply from the Mississippi River. If built, the project would destroy more than 50,000 acres of life-giving wetlands that great egrets and countless other wildlife depend on!
Tell the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to veto the New Madrid Levee project.
