In an effort to protect and restore wetlands, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced their investment of 15 million dollars to help eligible conservation partners by offering technical and financial assistance. In partnership with the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Services, the Wetland Reserve Enhancement Partnership is offering funding for this program via the Farm Bill conservation program. Funds are to be utilized for restoring and enhancing wetlands that are an integral part of agricultural land, including water quality, flood prevention, and wildlife habitat.
