PARTNERS EXPAND MISSISSIPPI RIVER REFORESTATION AND WETLANDS
Flood prone ‘batture lands’ eligible for conservation funding to improve water quality
A public-private partnership between Mississippi River Trust, Walton Family Foundation, U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities (the Endowment), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) offers conservation funding to owners of flood-prone farm land. The voluntary, four-year program seeks to convert 40,000 acres of frequently-flooded farm land into bottomland hardwood forests and wetlands. Eligible landowners in six lower Mississippi River states must own cropland within the active floodplain between levees and the Mississippi River--the “batture lands.” Download press release.
