Eaton County District Conservationist Tim Redder was recently featured on the Michigan Out of Doors show explaining how the Wetlands Reserve Program works.

The Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) is a voluntary program for the
restoration and protection of wetlands on private property. Technical and
financial assistance is provided in return for placing a conservation easement
on the property either permanently or for a period of 30 years. Financial
assistance is provided to landowners for restoration and enhancement practices
that are implemented on the WRP easement
