The Wetlands Reserve Program provides an opportunity for landowners to receive financial assistance to protect, restore and enhance wetlands on their property.  These wetlands provide food and shelter for migratory birds and other wetland dependent species, including state and federally listed species, and species of concern. In addition to providing wildlife benefits, WRP helps to reduce flooding, improve water quality by filtering sediment and chemicals, recharge groundwater and more.
