Wetland Mitigation Summit

South Dakota Farm Bureau is offering an opportunity for Dakotafest-goers to learn the latest about the Wetland Mitigation Bank in South Dakota. Wetland mitigation banking provides a way for farmers to work efficiently and protect the environment. South Dakota Farm Bureau, working in conjunction with Dakota Wetland Partners, is leading the way for farmers to buy credits and be able to move a wetland from a cropped field or sell credits by restoring or creating a new wetland. The forum will include USDA staff, farmers, and Dakota Wetland Partner experts discussing how farmers can become involved and benefit from wetland mitigation banking.

South Dakota Farm Bureau is proud to develop solutions for farm, ranch, and rural families while protecting the environment and building thriving communities.
