The Robert B. Todd servitude property totals approximately 306 acres and is 11 miles southeast of Tallulah, in Madison Parish, Louisiana.
The property was enrolled in the Wetlands Reserve Program in 2005 and was restored to forested wetlands.
The landowner strongly desires superior land stewardship, emphasizing outdoor recreation, wildlife management, and hunting.
This protected property is significant because it
- Benefits endemic and migratory species of wildlife in an agricultural landscape;
- Contributes to the conservation of soil, water, and air;
- Benefits rare, threatened, or endangered species, primarily the Louisiana black bear, utilize the property; and
- Is close to other similarly protected areas.
The property provides excellent hunting opportunities for deer and small game. Low-lying, seasonally inundated areas offer opportunities for waterfowl hunting. Eight moist-soil management areas on the property provide habitat critical to resident game and non-game birds as well as migratory birds, most notably neotropical songbirds, resident waterfowl, and migratory waterfowl.
The prominent mammals on this property are the Louisiana black bear and white-tailed deer. The Tensas River National Wildlife Refuge is about 3.5 miles away. Wildlife openings and food plots scattered on the property provide important habitat diversity to wildlife.
