Sydney Giuliano, Medium — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service partnered with The Conservation Fund to acquire an additional 2,691 acres of forested wetlands to be added to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. The land will provide essential habitat for migrating shorebirds, waterfowl, and other native species. But wildlife aren’t the only ones that benefit from the riches of these lands. Beneath the soil there are deep historic roots that may help us piece together previously untold stories.
