Status

Approved

PONDEROSA RANCH OF POINTE COUPEE MITIGATION BANK, an area of land off False River, formerly served as a cattle production site. Since its 2013 restoration, the wetlands became a flourishing home to deer, waterfowl, ducks, and, in 2020, for the first time in many years, black bears. This site’s unique series of ridges and swales provide an important mosaic of wetlands and uplands. As part of a larger assemblage of restored wetlands, Ponderosa Ranch of Pointe Coupee provides even greater ecological value to the area.

EIP owns and sponsors the bank, while Delta continues to work with permittees and consultants to sell the credits. These credits meet the needs of diverse development projects in the Gulf South, from roads to oil and gas to industrial development.
