Through the MN Conservation Reserve Enhancement (MNCREP) Program Local Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) and cooperating landowners will have over 400 wetland restoration projects that will need to be constructed over the next several years. Your help in getting this work done will be critical to the success of the program and meeting required implementation timelines. The work ranges from simple activities like breaking and blocking drainage tile, plugging and filling drainage ditches, to more complex activities like constructing earthen embankments and installing wetland outlet structures. Restoring drained wetlands and helping to develop these private lands’ conservation projects is truly satisfying and rewarding work.

To learn more about the program, type of construction work that can be expected, and how your construction company can get involved please consider attending one of the informational workshops that are being held.
