(PATOKA) - The Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge in southwestern Indiana is receiving more than $3 million in grants to help draw more waterfowl and to improve water quality and recreation.

The federal Migratory Bird Conservation Commission has approved $1 million for an expansion of the Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge located in Pike and Gibson Counties.

The commission also announced last week the project has $2.1 million in matching grants.

The expansion is aimed at restoring and enhancing habitat within the 6,600-acre refuge.

The work will include providing migration and breeding areas for waterfowl, helping rare and endangered fish and wildlife, improving water quality and providing recreation opportunities with local economic impacts.
