Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area (MRCCA) Restoration Priorities

This data delineates the areas in the Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area (MRCCA) that have been identified as having a high potential for increased environmental quality through vegetation restoration. <br/><br/>The identified restoration priorities are simply primary conservation areas (PCAs) that do not contain natural vegetation. PCAs are sensitive areas that benefit from a protective layer of deep-rooted natural vegetation to hold soil in place. This data set shows the following PCAs that do not contain natural vegetation: shore impact zone, bluff impact zone, wetlands, and floodplains.<br/>
