Bunchs Creek Mitigation Bank will restore agricultural fields and cattle pasture to the bottomland hardwood and pine flatwood/savannah habitats that were on this 621-acre site in the 1920s. This bank will help RES clients in the Calcasieu Basin by providing cost-effective mitigation for their projects’ unavoidable wetland impacts. The site will also perpetually protect a nest location used by a pair of endangered whooping cranes that are part of the experimental population in Louisiana.
