The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Partners for Fish & Wildlife program provides technical and financial assistance to solve land management problems, identify partners, and coordinate restoration work on private lands.
In the Midwest restoration projects generally occur in three habitat types: wetlands, prairies, and streams.
Wetland projects usually involve restoring wetlands that have been drained. Prairie restoration includes reseeding native grasses and wildflowers. Stream restoration is more common as landowners are interested in protecting their small streams and river banks.
