IDALS Wetland Funding Ready to Go
Wednesday, October 13th (12 pm – 1 pm)
Virtual Field Day
In the webinar, “Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship Wetland Initiatives,” Jake Hansen, water resources bureau chief, will highlight wetland initiatives and funding options available to landowners interested in building or restoring wetlands on their property. IDALS is significantly scaling up efforts to build and restore wetlands because of their effectiveness in intercepting nutrients carried in subsurface tile drainage and improving downstream water quality. With exponential growth in annual funding received by IDALS to provide technical and financial assistance for wetland projects, there is a substantial opportunity to increase the number of wetlands in Iowa.
