Reports recently released by the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) asses conservation practices farmers can implement to improve soil health and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
Key information for our most popular core programs.
Through the Minnesota Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (MN CREP), over 400 wetland restoration projects will need to be constructed over the next several years. BWSR is holding six workshops in early 2020 for contractors to learn more about the program, the work, and how they can get involved.
Local governments and non-profits can now apply for Lawns to Legumes demonstration neighborhood grants. Lawns to Legumes is a new program that will help Minnesota residents plant native vegetation and pollinator friendly forbs and legumes to protect a diversity of pollinators. Demonstration neighborhoods are community projects that will enhance pollinator habitat and showcase best practices.
