NRCS Kansas and NRCS Idaho have teamed up to publish a booklet and accompanying web page named Better Wetlands, a guide to more than a dozen ideas to improve restored wetlands for wildlife and personal enjoyment. Through their generosity, NRCS New York has created it's own web version based on the material found in the original publication.
