Did you know that restoring wetlands on your property can put “cash” in your pocket?

Do you own property that was historically wet but the natural drainage has been altered by the installation of ditches or agricultural drain tiles?

Do you own marginal agricultural land that is often difficult to plant in the spring or harvest in the fall because of wetness?

Are you interested in receiving technical assistance and cost-share $$ to improve wildlife habitat on your property by restoring wetlands?

You could be eligible to receive between $2,000 —$5,000/acre for land that is restored to a wetland and protected with a conservation easement!
