California tribe completes wetlands restoration

The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians in California has restored a 2,000-acre wetlands that will be open to hunting and provide revenue for the tribe.

Two years ago, the tribe began pumping treated wastewater onto the land. The effort paid off, with trees, willows, turkeys, ducks and other wildlife appearing next.

Part of the land is already leased for a hunting club. The tribe will allow hunting in parts of the area, with revenues going to housing, education and other programs.
