"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
Long regarded as wasteland, wetlands are now recognized as important features in the landscape that provide numerous functions and values. Extremely valuable for their ability to clean water, reduce flooding, sequester carbon, and provide habitat, wetlands are a threatened landform.
A wetland mitigation bank is a degraded wetland site that is reestablished for the purpose of offsetting wetland losses that result from construction or development.
Tallgrass Land Conservation has been working on wetland mitigation sites since 2014 and is the sponsor of two wetlands in southern Wisconsin.
From site suitability to restoration and long-term stewardship, we are experienced in all aspects of wetland mitigation bank management. Click on Projects to learn more about our wetlands.
Tallgrass Land Conservation can review your wetland for restoration options, conservation incentive program qualifications, or wetland mitigation bank suitability.
