NRCS Conservation Programs

Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) Maps

The Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) is a voluntary program offering landowners the opportunity to protect, restore, and enhance wetlands on their property. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provides technical and financial support to help landowners with their wetland restoration efforts. The NRCS goal is to achieve the greatest wetland functions and values, along with optimum wildlife habitat, on every acre enrolled in the program. WRP offers landowners an opportunity to establish long-term conservation and wildlife practices and protection.

To learn more see WRP. The data used to make these maps is available in a downloadable csv file.
