Petit Bois Wetland Mitigation Bank (Coastal)
- Cameron Parish
- Wetlands: 876.5 AC
- Wetlands, Streams or Nutrients: LRAM-Calcasieu Basin
The goal of the Bank was to re-establish and rehabilitate sustainable bottomland hardwood and bald cypress forested wetland ecosystems for compensatory mitigation purposes. The re-establishment and rehabilitation of bottomland hardwood and bald cypress wetland ecosystems was accomplished by converting existing agricultural and pasture and Chinese tallow (Triadica sebifera) forests to a natural species composition indicative of a bottomland hardwood and bald cypress wetland forest and subsequently, increasing wetland functions, values, and services.
