Wetland Reserve Program
The Wetland Reserve Program is a voluntary program to restore wetlands that have been altered or drained. Landowners can establish conservation easements of either permanent or 30 year duration, or they can enter into a restoration cost-share agreement where no easement is involved. In exchange for establishing a permanent conservation easement through WRP, the landowner received payment up to the agricultural value of the land as well as cost-sharing for work needed to restore the wetland. The landowner continues to control access to their land.
